Tadaaki Sato / 佐藤 忠明

designer , Photographer

 

I was born in Tokyo in 1970. In a design company in Tokyo, I was in charge of planning, interface design, management and programming. When I got married in 2003, I seized the moment and moved to Yuzawa City, Akita, and started my own business. As a freelance designer, I provide services such as photo-taking, designs on paper, Web design, logo design and other variety of product designs. I am also active as a photographer; I have put on a solo exhibition as well as taken part in many themed and group exhibitions both within and out of Akita Prefecture. I continue to take photos with Akita’s scenery, nature, culture and a unique atmosphere that comes from its dampish air, as my theme.

 

1970年、東京都生まれ。都内デザイン会社にて企画立案、インターフェイスデザイン、マネージメント、プログラミング等を手掛ける。2003年、結婚を機に秋田県湯沢市に転居。以降フリーランスとして独立。写真撮影、紙媒体・Webデザイン、ロゴデザイン等、各種プロダクトデザインを手掛ける。写真家として個展の他、県内外の企画展、グループ展に多数参加。秋田の原風景、風土、文化、湿り気のある空気感をテーマに作品制作を続けている。

Portrait / My Family photos

I have been continuously taking pictures of the family with film. While a digital camera can instantly display the images of pictures taken, the images on film needs to go through the process of ‘development’ before they finally become pictures. For that process, photographic development solution and fixing solution are prepared, and vats are aligned on a table. Minding that negatives do not catch any dust, I meticulously clean the enlarger and easel. In a room barely lit up by a safelight, contact prints will be first produced. I lay down the negatives on printing papers, all lined up, and then push the exposure button. After slowly immersing the printing papers in the vats filled with development solution for about 20 seconds, the images start to come alive. The temperature, humidity, smell and sound, all of which I had felt with my bare skin right there and then, come back to me all at once. A picture does not record the sound or motion as a video does, but it packs a myriad of information still. So I invest my time in printing them carefully, one picture at a time. I wish to live the rest of my life, being engrossed in these times full of wonder.
