In Tokyo Untitled Renato D’Agostin isolates himself in the geometries of the Japanese city. He narrates his journey through his experience of the street, describing with the language of abstract images, charged of deep blacks and sharp edges. Dislocating subjects from their realities, D’Agostin depicts his perception of the space around him, the relationship between the city’s architecture and its people, and their interferences. This is emphasized in Tokyo, according to D’Agostin, where he has no reference or connection with the external world, and his sense of disconnection brings him to a discovery of the unseen.

"In 2007, I turned my attention to Japanese photography, which inspired me to explore what my point of view could be in a city so far from the world that had always surrounded me, but so close to the photographic imagery towards which I was addressing my attention.
Longing to break the unconscious, immediate and easy processes of the known and the predictable, I traveled to Tokyo for the first time.
I was immediately struck by a sense of disorientation and an inability to quickly locate my own position within the geography of the city. My lack of precise references to the external world created in me feelings of isolation and detachment from my previously known realities.
[...] Tokyo Untitled represents a visual record of my journey to the “capital of the East” and its invisible elements diluted in visible everyday life."
