Diorama Maps at Sanatorium
Sanatorium is hosting the last day of “Diorama Maps,” the first individual exhibition of Japanese photography’s young and emerging name, Sohei Nishino.
The exhibition at Sanatorium includes works from the “Diorama Maps” series that Nishino started as a student in Osaka University.
The series consists of large and multi-layered maps reconstructed by Nishino’s memories by walking the streets of Osaka and recordings of this walk in photographic form.
Each map is the result of an intense preparation period in which the artist printed the photos by himself, before cutting and gluing them and then taking the photo of the final collage.
The maps show Nishino’s view of cities and the impressions they leave their viewer, along with their many iconic places.
