Yokonami’s work is imbued with a dazzling transparency in which the purity and incompleteness of the subjects’ expressions are brilliantly portrayed. This particular style of documenting the very second in which these imperfect fantasies come to life is something only Yokonami can recreate.

Assembly by Osamu Yokonami
There are collective portraits where girls wear the same clothes.
Each person has their own personality.
I try to keep a bit of distance between us in this work.
Then,the existence of each person disappeared and the existence of the group appeared instead.
The strength and beauty as collective entity stood out more by being in nature.
The expressiveness of the group was attractive.
