As one of the first artistic acts we perform in our lives, from painting with our dinner to throwing wet toilet paper on to the ceiling at school, unexpected mark-making is always a winner. Taisuke Koyama, a Japanese fine-art photographer, likes to zoom in on the overlooked bit of life, and creates sets of themed photographs that require a closer look to be fully appreciated.
Among his other collections of images including a selection of identical rainbows he noticed kept appearing in posters around Tokyo, is this series Thousand Impacts he documents the marks that balls have left on a tennis court. What may look like aerial shots of raging tropical seas turn out to be something pretty humdrum indeed, and so fully proves Taiuske’s worth as an exceedingly good fine art photographer.
