The souvenir photographs

EBIHARA Shoko

Graphic art [Japan]

The artist hires a professional photographer from the local area to take her picture in a suit on a platform used for group photographs of travelers in sightseeing areas. Neither negatives nor data remain as the artwork is the process of ordering, purchasing, and receiving a touristic picture. The artist looks like an icon in these photographs, all of which have essentially the same basic structure, and inserts herself into various landscapes all over Japan.
