Junya Suzuki is a Japanese street photographer who captures daily life’s surrealisms.
Presented below is a series titled An Aesthetics of Everyday Life, a documentary exploring ordinary matters with their beauty, weirdness and irony. Looking at the pictures of Junya one may noticed a specific emptiness, a void which exudes from vivid images.
The artists describes this impression as a continuation of Japanese „wabi-sabi".
„One day, I found a common point in photos I captured. That's the quietness. I may unconsciously feel an aesthetic sense like "wabi-sabi" in the environment which keeps creating, destroying and changing all the time. Nothing is permanent in this world. And we know life is not endless.That's why I suspect that we can have a feeling of existing together in harmony,” poetically concludes the photographer.
