2008年に発表されたシリーズ”ヨッシワールド”から新たな作品を含めた写真集を出版。

氏が撮り続けるシリーズ”ヨッシワールド”の登場人物である「ヨッシサクライ」なる不思議な生き物が写真の中に息づいており、見る者の度肝を抜く世界観が広がる。小さな舞台上に、繊細な手作業で繰り広げられる独特の世界観は、風刺的で尖っていながらどこか優しく、寂しくも感じさせる不思議な世界である。徹底してエンターテインメントを追求する写真家・岡部東京の初の写真作品集。

 

The shock I felt when I first saw Okabe’s work!

Instinctively, I looked away for a moment, only to return my gaze to the photographs in front of me, and this time, paying greater attention.

The photographs somehow made me feel happy, and as I continued to go through more of them, I couldn’t stop smiling.

 

Filling the screen were these disturbing creatures, Yosshi Sakusai. They were alive, breathing. It was not just their appearance: All together they were uniform with bold heads and white underpants.

However, each individual was unique with a full and personal expression – a complete and separate identity.

It might be that all these quirky individuals, standing around, are daily scenes in Yosshi World, but to my eyes, they seemed extraordinary.

 

If they were the creation of some post-production techniques, it would not have drawn my attention. But when I found out that these were staged photo cutouts, the handiwork of the maker, suddenly Okabe became, for me, a great artist.

 

 “Okabe Tokyo’s “Yosshi World” – I want to introduce this wonderful strange world to everyone.
