Kalen Hollomon has made his career from Instagram. With an audience of nearly 100k followers, California-born collage artist Kalen can now command commissions from the very brands he satirises in his art.
Photographer Toru Akai says that his main interest lies in “hidden and invisible structures in our modern society.” This idea underpins his series Invisible Machinery which looks at modern life in Tokyo in a series of brooding and atmospheric images. “Invisible Machinery is embodied in the social systems, the law and the architecture. Sometimes it appears in our own behaviour, gestures and figures,” says Toru, “So Invisible Machinery is in the outside and even in the inside of us. It’s invisible but the signs are everywhere among us. And I think a photograph could capture the invisible structure so well.’
