With remarkable clarity, the photographs of New York-based photographer Shigeki Yoshida capture the deepest shadows and glimmering lights within architecture, cityscapes, and documentary portraiture. His minimalist techniques activate each photographic still with high contrast blacks and whites. Yoshida often uses light to create tight focus on his subjects, yet, in doing so, the viewer is left to question what is masked in darkness.
Shigeki Yoshida was born in the province of Ibaraki, a suburb of Tokyo, Japan. He received his Master of Fine Arts from Hunter College (New York). Shigeki’s work has been exhibited throughout Asia, as well as at the Safe-T-Gallery (Brooklyn), the Joyce Gordon Gallery, (Oakland, CA), the Camera Club of New York, Tokyo Gallery (Japan), and Susan Eley Fine Art (New York). Yoshida has participated in numerous residencies, including most recently, Yaddo (Saratoga Springs, NY).
