The highly experimental photographer Daisuke Yokota works with both digital and physical darkroom tools to create images that range from moody black-and-white portraits to high-keyed abstractions. In 2016, Yokota received the Foam Paul Huf Award, one of the highest distinctions awarded to talented contemporary photographers under the age of 35. Images from his “Color Photographs” series —which he creates using cameraless photography and intentionally damaged negatives —feature swirls of iridescent color. The series exemplifies his process-heavy approach, which can include applying flames to prints or using images as sculptural elements. Yokota’s accolades also include the Photo London’s inaugural John Kobal Residency Award in 2015. His photographic manipulations appear as individual artworks and also in zines and books, and his works are housed in institutional collections including the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Foam Fotografiemuseum in the Netherlands, the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, and the New York Public Library.
