Yoshitaka Goto Photo Exhibition "Mission" 3.17 fri-26sun.

Chignitta Space will hold a photo exhibition from March 17 to coincide with the publication of “Mission” (233press), a book of photographs by Yoshitaka Goto, a photographer who continues to create multiple exposure works with a film camera.


Yoshitaka Goto

Graduated from Kyoto Sangyo University, Faculty of Business Administration.
Freelance photographer, founded the photography agency JamArts in 2018, registered artist for digmeout by FM802/FM COCOLO, discovered film cameras made by Lomography, which originated in Russia in 2008, and put aside the digital SLR cameras he had been using until then. Inspired by Lomography users around the world who enjoy taking pictures without being bound by stereotypes, he immersed himself in multiple exposures, creating computer graphics and science fiction film-like worlds using analog techniques such as multiple exposures and cross process development. His works are sometimes fantastical and sometimes crazy, and have been highly acclaimed in various competitions. His works have been exhibited in solo shows in Japan and at art fairs in Japan and abroad.
His works have been used for various advertisements, book covers, music jackets, corporate calendars, and other artwork. He also teaches film camera workshops at various schools. He has also appeared as a guest at talk events in Japan and abroad, and published a photo book “Inception” (Buffalo Press) in 2018, “X-ing” (233 Press) in 2019, and “Mission” (233 Press) in 2023.


Yoshitaka Goto has more than 10 years of experience with Lomography film cameras, specializing in multiple exposures, in which multiple subjects are layered on top of each other on the film during shooting. Many of his works are created using tricky techniques such as masking the lens vertically or horizontally, or reattaching the previously shot film to the camera and re-shooting from the beginning again.

Multiple exposures are often thought of as the product of chance, but his work is not limited to this. He is greatly influenced by the work of film director Christopher Nolan, and his desire is to express the world of his films through multiple exposures. Many of Mr. Nolan’s works are a complex interplay of time and space. His filming methods include moving across countries and intersecting time axes by rewinding the film. In addition, he plans his shoots meticulously to ensure the expression of Mr. Nolan’s worldview. This is his “Mission. Selected works from “Mission,” a photo book containing such works by Yoshitaka Goto, as well as past masterpieces will be exhibited and sold.

The artist will be present during the entire exhibition period. Please enjoy his world of work while listening to him talk about his thoughts on his work and rare photographic techniques. A newly published book of his works will also be on sale at the venue.

The latest photo book “Mission” will be on sale at the venue.
