About Jorge Sato

 

The purpose of my photos is not just to show reality as a perfect register of a moment or a place. It is much more about unique moments and deep feelings. I’m convinced these dreamlike instants can’t be arranged beforehand. Beautiful and memorable events happen everywhere and all the time. The thing is to learn how to see and interpret themt


A strong-willed photographer struggling to reach mysterious and undiscovered places through analogue universe, not using the perfect technique as a craftsman. Rather, using the sensibility of an apprentice. The purpose of my photos is not just to show reality as a perfect register of a moment or a place. It is much more about unique moments and deep feelings. I’m convinced these dreamlike instants can’t be arranged beforehand. Beautiful and memorable events happen everywhere and all the time. The thing is to learn how to see and interpret them. My work is based on two visual approaches: unreal and oneiric images using Lo-Fi film cameras which are well-known by their unpredictability and particular effects and the Romantic aesthetics (inspired by the artistic movement in the early decades of the nineteenth century) using TLR film cameras.
