The Gas Works 3 The Gas Works (ガス工場) Tokyo 2003

Edmund Sumner
£1,700.00

The above image is entitled TOKYO Gas 2003 and from a Series of municipal / human landscapes around japan in 2002/2003 . This is one of my favourite pieces of work, and the result of a fascination with municipal landscapes that seemed totally Alien / oppressive but on closer examination were anything but . This scene was taken early one Sunday morning and captures family playing seemingly unaware of the visual irony of scale . It was not until I saw the 5/4 transparency I realised the kid had dropped a tennis ball which was frozen mid air .With the kid in a disposable paper play suit the new mothers in semi uniforms and the bikes lined up it’s a quintessentially Japanese scene
