Tsubasa Saitoh is an up-and-coming Japanese photographer whose minimalist aesthetic magnifies everyday scenes into picturesque works of art. Born in Hokkaido and based in Tokyo, Saitoh is entirely self-taught and is set to unveil a solo exhibition at DIESEL ART GALLERY.

“MY EYES” presents a comprehensive range of Saitoh’s works, including a selection of never-before-seen photographs that appear to float from wire-hung frames in the center of the gallery. There is a cold, almost machine-like feel to Saitoh’s photographs — as if each composition is a study that is rigorously analyzed by a team of scientists in a laboratory.

This framing is made to bridge the gap between “what is deemed art and what is not,” said the artist in a statement. Saitoh comments further by adding that each photo aims to “convert organic matter into inorganic matter, of life into death, to create a new sense of discomfort and give it beauty.”

To accompany the exhibition, DIESEL and the artist will also release limited merchandise such as zines, postcards, and other related goods. “MY EYES” is on view until August 4.

On the topic of exhibitions, enter L21’s video game-inspired group show “Brick Games.”
