Tomio Seike: Overlook

  • Posted by SHFT on February 6, 2012 in Photography
  • For the past thirty years, Japanese photographer Tomio Seike has divided time between Japan and Europe. In 2010 he lived in a holiday apartment on Marine Parade in Brighton, England, where he took these photos of the beachscape below. The series, titled "Overlook," show tiny human figures at the edge of an endless sea, harkening Romantic landscape paintings. In fact, on first glance, they can easily be mistaken for paintings. 

    "At first sight the viewer could be forgiven for assuming that the artist was a watercolourist," writes Andy Cowan in the exhibition catalogue. "Ironically so as the photographs represent a quantum leap for Seike in terms of technique – hurdling from black and white film to colour digital file in one bound."
