About the Artists

1959 , Japan

Asako Narahashi (1959) is a Tokyo-based photographer whose work mainly focuses on the relationship between water and land. The main part of her work is shot from the water offering a different and unexpected viewpoint on the land. Whilst looking at Narahashi’s photographs they bring us the amazement of a reversed vision and the sense of disorientation. Although Narahashi also takes photographs on land parallel to her water photographs, they both resonate a unique sense of distance and instability. The series on the iconic Mount Fuji that she photographed between 2003 and 2013 both from the water and land is a good example of the ambivalent feelings of seasickness and floating comfortably, Narahashi’s work evokes with the viewer. As of 1995 Narahashi has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions in Japan, China, the U.S., Germany, France, Sweden and the Netherlands. Most recently her work was exhibited during the international photo festival BredaPhoto in 2014. Her work has also been published in 7 artist books, of which ever after from 2013 is the latest one. Narahashi has been awarded the Newcomer’s Award from the Photographic Society of Japan in 1998, in 2003 the Society of Photography Award and in 2008 the Higashikawa Prize Domestic Photographer. Narahashi’s work is included in collections across the world, including The National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and Huis Marseille in Amsterdam.
