A culmination of a ten-year investigation into lenticular manipulation, Japanese photographer Tetsuro Sato presents, in his first New York exhibition, a selection of recent photo-portraits. Influenced by and rebelling against the Japanese phenomenon of the purikura—photo-sticker booths that beautify sitters using cutesy photographic manipulation such as blemish-erasing washouts and eye enlargement—Sato creates his own series of hengao (“funny/strange faces”).
Instead of digital alterations, however, Sato distorts the models’ images through the use of glassware and mirrors.
