Toshio Shibata’s photobook “Falling Water” captures the infrastructure of dams in Japan and the United States of America in a series of black-and-white photographs.
Shibata, born in Japan in 1949 and trained as a classical painter, focused on civil engineering structures in his work, with compositions that place these artificial interventions into a relationship with the context of their surroundings.
“About two decades ago, I had the opportunity to photograph a set of photos for the large vertical book DAM. To view my subject in vertical way gave me the impression that I was loosing delicate materials in the photo. Despite my efforts, and I couldn’t make the assignment in time. However, I continued photographing dams, and the result is this book.”
Toshio Shibata’s work is included in the permanent collections of museums around the world, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
