In Dedicated, published in parallel to the current exhibition at AM gallery, photographer Kurigami points his camera towards contemporary dancer Yasuyuki Shuto. Shot with love and passion for his subject, the resulting black&white photographs work as a portray of Shuto’s expressive gestural and mimic talent, as a documentation of a dancer’s complete dedication to his art and how it formed his body.
"The body evolves.
From youth to manhood.
From prime of life to the golden years…
In pursuit of the soul dwelling in the body.
The dancer continues on his journey.
Nothing to fear.
A journey toward ultimate decay."
— from the artist’s statement
