石川直樹氏 展覧会「Across Borders:」
The Government of Alberta and the Royal Alberta Museum are committed to recognizing the 35th anniversary of formal relations between Hokkaido and Alberta. To recognize this important milestone, this contemporary photographic exhibition by Japanese photographer Naoki Ishikawa will show at the Royal Alberta Museum in Alberta and at the Historical Museum of Hokkaido in Sapporo, Japan.
Born in Tokyo in 1977, Naoki Ishikawa is interested in anthropology and ethnology in addition to exploration of the unknown. He has published works dealing with the experiences of migration and travel. For The Void (published in 2006 by Knee High Media) he won both the Sagamihara Prize for Newcomer Professionals as well as the Jun Miki Award. For New Dimension and Polar (published in 2008 by Akaakasha Art Publishing and Little More, respectively), he received the Photographic Society of Japan’s Newcomer’s Award and the Kodansha Publication Culture Award. For his work in 2009, which included Mt. Fuji and Vernacular (published by Little More and AkaAkasha Art Publishing, respectively), he received the Higashikawa Award for “Best New Photographer.” Vernacular includes photographs of the Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) in the Canadian Northwest and of the Arctic towns of Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk. Ishikawa also won the Domon Ken Award for Corona, a photographic portrayal of 21st-century reality across the vastly spread out islands of Polynesia.
