Ken Kitano


Contemporary Photographers


“I have been working on my project ‘our face’ since 1999. In the project, I visit various local areas around the world to take photos of the various groups of people living there. On 35 mm film, I take photos of the people who form their respective communities, both old and new […] Then I create a portrait by evenly layering the images of the members of each group with a precise analog printing technique. In this globalization age, the project attempts to capture the world as an accumulation of localities.” - Ken Kitano (via)
