About The Good Side
Japanese photographer, filmmaker and art director Okuyama’s latest photobook, The Good Side. In his new book, he takes you along his honeymoon and captures these personal moments to be present forever.
“My medium of choice: the present tense. The fleeting moment. My purpose is to filter the everyday and then transform it into the ever present. Isolating the ordinary and then refracting it into something extraordinary. Harnessing streaks of truth and echoes of memories. Distilling light and shadow into illuminating glimpses. The result of each shutter click is not a photograph. It is consciousness itself sparked from experience. Snapshots and blips of our interconnected now.
From my own deeply personal perspective, I hope something universal springs forth. Something revealing about the human experience. Nothing special, while at the same time supremely special. A living stream of imagery of what connects us all. What we know to be true, but words often fail to articulate. A feeling. A sense memory. A concrete nowness. The life and light of us all. An optimistic tint to the reflection that is us. I aim to capture radiating, pure expressions of the human experience. Of now and for all time.” – Yoshiyuki Okuyama
