Masahiro Kodaira

Masahiro Kodaira was born in Tokyo in 1972 and graduated from Tokyo Zokei University in 1997. He studied photography under Yutaka Takanashi and Akihide Tamura. Joined the archive project for the work of Kiyoji Otsuji in 1996, he produced modern prints from Otsuji’s negatives and also organized exhibitions of Otsuji’s works. Motivated by his interest in the fundamental mysteries regarding his relation to the world, Kodaira shoots intuitively in response to various environments. He then fixes his images, through his sophisticated darkroom techniques, as works with unique visual intensity. His solo exhibitions include “Dr. Lorenz’s Butterfly”, Sirius Aidem Photo Gallery (Tokyo, 2002), “tsuzuki-no kawarini (Instead of Continuation)”, Gekkoso (Tokyo, 2009), “The Wholly Other”, Omotesando Garo (Tokyo, 2013) and “The Wholly Other”, Taka Ishii Gallery Photography / Film and Plaza Gallery (Tokyo, 2015). His works are included in the collection of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
