Cane Project


お持ちの杖の写真を撮らせてくださる方を募集しています。お心当たりの方は、タイトルを「Cane Projectの件」として、ぜひお気軽にメールでお問い合わせください

A project that Yamato has been working on since 2013. In 2010, Yamato created a work in which a brush, a tool for exploring painting, was used as a walking stick to explore the world. Then, in 2013, after an encounter with a woman using a cane on a mountain path, she began photographing canes used in reality. Since then, he has been photographing walking sticks used in various places and the scenery around them, and the number of sticks he has photographed now exceeds 400. He carefully walks around the places he visits and asks or is introduced to people who have canes, and often takes pictures of canes owned by individuals, but sometimes he takes pictures of canes owned by local museums or archives. Through encounters with the owners of these canes and walking sticks, and through research into the history of walking sticks since ancient times, I also develop them into installations, performance pieces, and workshops.
I am looking for people who are willing to let me take photos of their canes. If you know of anyone who might be interested, please feel free to send me an email with the title “Cane Project”.
