Jun Iwasaki’s To Find The Right Chair pursues musings of the mind forming mental pictures of scenes of consciousness. The scene hangs there but occasionally there might emerge a glimpse of a metaphor. Throughout his shooting, he feels sympathy with subjects, by projecting his emotions onto them, associating and harmonizing with what he sees.
He is not a photographer yet, he is just an ordinary guy trying to live a daily life. For him, photography is a medium to express thought; like going to the supermarket to get the ingredients to cook soup for your friends.
This book has 20 coloured and 2 b/w photographs taken with a small-format camera in 10 different cities where the photographer used to live, or visit, between 2012 and 2020.
Each photo presents an historical yet insignificant moment in Iwasaki’s visual poetry.
