 この度メグミオギタギャラリーでは、1月14日(火) から2月1日(土) まで、北海道を拠点として活動する写真家、井上浩輝と清水愛里、富士山フォトグラファーTAKASHIの三人展を開催致します。

 井上浩輝(1979年 札幌生まれ) は、新潟大学法学部卒業、東北学院大学法務研究科修了後、北海道に戻り、風景写真の撮影を開始しました。その後、キタキツネなど北国を悠々と生きる動物のいる美しい風景を追い求めて撮影を続けています。
 2016年には、日本人として初めて「National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year」コンテストのネイチャー部門1 位を受賞し、2017年には「情熱大陸(毎日放送)」に出演、日本を代表する写真家の一人として今後の世界的な活躍が益々期待されています。2018年にはメグミオギタギャラリーで個展を開催し、静謐さと躍動感が入り混じる北海道の風景や、井上の優しく見守る視点がつくり出すキタキツネの作品群などを展示し好評を博しました。

  TAKASHIは2011年に初めて本格的に富士山を撮影し、以後8年間富士山だけを撮り続け、2014年から海外での作品発表を始めます。その後アメリカNational Geographic Traveler誌の表紙を飾り、ほか国際的フォトコンテストで多数受賞するなど多くの実績を上げてきました。国内では2019年に銀座ソニーイメージングギャラリーで個展を開催し、同年続けてソニーストア名古屋、札幌での個展を開催しています。また雑誌やテレビなどで特集が組まれるなど、活躍の場を広げています。

 清水愛里(1989年 千葉県生まれ) は2017年の初夏、北海道で撮影する井上浩輝に同行した時に、自然の素晴らしさに圧倒されました。その中で自身でも写真を撮りたいという強い思いが湧き上がり、カメラを手にします。

 今展において、井上は、勇壮で威厳溢れるエゾシカ写真を4点、代表作“Fox Chase”の姉妹作“Fox Hug”を1点、計5点を展示、TAKASHIは代表作である冷黒調のモノクロ写真を発展させたブルーインクシリーズのひまわりや雲、舟などと共にとらえた富士の作品6点を展示し、清水は同ギャラリー内のプロジェクトルームにて、北海道で出会った動物や自然を優しさ溢れる視点でとらえた作品10点を展示販売致します。

 「井上浩輝・TAKASHI・清水愛里 三人展」に是非ご期待ください。

MEGUMI OGITA GALLERY is pleased to hold an exhibition of three photographers based in Hokkaido, Hiroki INOUE and eillie shimizu, and Mt. Fuji photographer TAKASHI from Tuesday, 14th January to Saturday, 1st February.

Hiroki INOUE (Born in Sapporo, 1979) returned to Hokkaido to start photographing landscapes after graduating from Faculty of Law at Niigata University and finishing his studies at Tohoku Gakuin University. Since then, he has been shooting for beautiful scenery with animals that live peacefully in the northern region, such as Ezo red foxes.

In 2016, he became the first Japanese to win 1st place in the Nature Category of "National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year". In 2017, he appeared in "Jonetsu Tairiku (Passion Continent, Mainichi Broadcasting System)" and is expected to play an active role in the world as one of Japan's leading photographers. In 2018, he held a solo exhibition at MEGUMI OGITA GALLERY. He exhibited a mix of tranquility and dynamism in Hokkaido, as well as the works of Ezo red foxes created by his own point of view, which were well received.

TAKASHI photographed Mt. Fuji in earnest for the first time in 2011, and has continued to photograph only Mt. Fuji for next 8 years. He began presenting his work overseas in 2014. Since then, he has been featured on the cover of National Geographic Traveler magazine in the United States and won many international photo contests. In Japan, Sony held a solo exhibition at the Sony Imaging Gallery Ginza in 2019, and held other solo exhibitions at Sony Stores in Nagoya and Sapporo that year. In addition, he has been featured in magazines and on television, expanding the scope of his activities.

He shoots Mt. Fuji from every season, time and distance, and pursues new Mt. Fuji with his unconventional ideas such as clear and vivid colors, delicate contrasts in monochrome, and deep and tranquil blue ink series. The series is more like portrait photos than landscape photos.

In the early summer of 2017, eillie shimizu (Born in Chiba, 1989) was overwhelmed by wonders of nature when she accompanied Hiroki INOUE, shooting in Hokkaido. In the midst of this, she was eager to take pictures herself and got a camera.

Since then, she went to Hokkaido every month to take pictures. In February 2019, she moved to Higashikawa-cho, a town of photograph in Hokkaido, and while taking pictures for corporate advertisements, she creates works with animals and natural landscapes among beautiful landscapes in northern Japan.

In this exhibition, INOUE will exhibit 4 photos of the brave and dignified Yezo sika deer and 1 of the sister work of his masterpiece "Fox Chase", "Fox Hug", a total of 5 works. TAKASHI will exhibit 6 works of Fuji with blue ink series sunflowers, clouds and boats developed from his masterpiece cold and black monochrome photographs. Shimizu will exhibit 10 works that capture animals and nature she encounters in Hokkaido from a gentle perspective in the project room of the gallery.

We hope you look forward to "Hiroki INOUE, TAKASHI and eillie shimizu Exhibition".
