Photographer Kito Fujio revisits the landscape of childhood.
Grinning robots, gaping whales: the playgrounds of photographer Kito Fujio’s youth are charmingly documented in a new series of nostalgic images. ‘Park Playground Equipment’ is the name of this project, which revisits the bright, concrete landscapes of his childhood. The animals in his photographs are spotlit and surreal (Fujio takes his lighting equipment with him during these night-time excursions to the park). Focussing on the work of the sculptor and landscape architect Isamu Noguchi, Fujio’s photo-series examines the colourful environment of his past. A book of his photographs is available here.
