Kensuke Koike (b.1980, Japan) makes unique interferences with found photographic material. Often with witty or abstract results.
“Before I used archival images, I was shooting photographs on my own and altering them. But because I had the negatives and originals, I could make mistakes in the cutting and altering of them— I could just print another copy of an image and start all over again.
All my materials come from flea markets. I don’t necessarily look for a specific scenario in the photos because I make them special by transforming them myself.
I began to use archival images because I wanted to try something more challenging and delve deeper into the meaning of an image. More risk means that I have to think twice before cutting the originals, and that is important.” – Kensuke Koike
