Japanese photographer Takamoto Yamauchi’s latest series was created during several journeys within Japan and overseas and is a dark trip into the depths of the human psyche. Selected from over 30,000 photographs, Yamauchi’s “Vortex” slowly came into being during the author’s year-long correspondence with Daido Moriyama. The result is a dizzying series of photographs that transcends genres and engages in metaphors and narrative subtlety to explore Yamauchi’s interests in the black parts of the human psyche.

"Vortex" was presented as an exhibition at Akio Nagasawa Gallery and has recently been published as a book by Case.
