Although Yukio Kitayama’s work was exhibited at many group exhibitions in Japan, the exhibition entitled “Realize” is the first one-person exhibition for Kitayama. Contains more than 30 gelatin-silver prints printed in 11×14 inch and 20×24 inch. Each photograph is not only sensitive but also high quality print printed by Kitayama. Six years ago, he moved to Okayama Prefecture from his hometown Yokohama. Since then, he went to the “river” quite often and started photograph flow of water. The river made him relaxed, and naturally he felt the river became quite particular to him. He at first looked for interesting form made by water, and gradually became aware that each flow of water existed certainly and brilliantly. No flow was the same as the next flow even if they looked same at a glance. It seemed a metaphor of the way of living.
