Through rhythmic repetition and seriality, Osamu Yokonami contemplates socialization and cultural homogeneity, highlighting our interconnectedness with nature and with one another. He explores dualistic, oppositional conceptions of selfhood and the fine line between innocence and vice.

Osamu Yokonami (b. 1967, Kyoto, Japan) has had recent solo exhibitions in Japan and the United States, and participated in the Daegu Photo Biennial. He has published two monographs: 1000 Children and Assembly. Yokonami is based in Tokyo, Japan.
