Eight years after his last travel photobook “Short Trip Again”, Koji Onaka again wandered through Japan’s hinterland, observing it through a 35mm lens.
Shot over a period of seven years, “Have a Break” features scenes taken in Hokkaido in the north, Kyushu in the south and many different stations in-between. Onaka’s fondness of a particular, unique style of color adds to the sentimental, deep sense of familiarity and warmth in his images, in which Onaka transforms everyday sights in small towns and rural regions into curious visual wonders.
“The photographs do not show anything particularly special that could be taken anywhere but scenes that strangely touched my heart – cityscapes, people, sunlight, or sometimes cats.”
— from Koji Onaka’s statement (translation by shashasha)
