SAWADA Tomoko 澤田 知子

This debut work by Sawada was photographed using a black-and-white automated ID photo machine that used a developing solution and was in use at the time she produced these prints. To create it, her chosen method was to costume herself as four hundred others, nonexistent people, and photograph herself in each role, using an automated ID photo machine instead of pressing the shutter button herself. Since then, her distinctive methods, as seen in Self Portrait, a series in which she photographed herself, and Typology, in which she combined multiple photographs in a grid format, have become a characteristic of Sawada’s work and one that is quite fascinating.
