Yota Yoshida (1981) is a Japanese street photographer who lives in Tokyo. He attaches great importance to shoot photographs in a carefully and considered manner. In his work he tries to capture the atmosphere of the contemporary Japanese society. On this page a selection from his series “From somewhere, to elsewhere”. Yota describes this project with the following words: “I started working on “From somewhere, to elsewhere” only recently – it’s an ongoing project that will take a long time in the making. It’s a short little story, an urban quest for the answer to the questions that make up the title of a Gauguin’s painting: “Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?” The theme of my series is based on those universal, fundamental questions. The pictures also explore the changes in my consciousness and views on society, but I’ll let the photographs speak – if you look at them carefully, I believe you will understand what I’m trying to say.”
