Katsumi Saiki

Photographer in Tokyo Japan

Katsumi Saiki
Born 1973
Tokyo-based photographer

Photography is a drop of milk in coffee, or a spice.
Photography enriches the world; it mellows, familiarizes, gives depth and complexity. It allows us to connect with the world around us through the medium of the camera.
The world is a complex place, and there are innumerable ways of relating to it.
I do it by taking a step forward or a leap into the air, camera held high, by crouching low or finding something quirky to put in frame. By doing something a little different I can surprise the viewer; I can use images to say something about complex issues or just make a witty observation on the world around me. Taking pictures is my way of creating stories, of making sense of my world.

Ken and Mary's Sex Education

@ VOL 112 ON MAR 26, 2014

"It seemed like a good idea at the time..."

In the PechaKucha Spirit of Valentines Day, we ask "What happens when you have two naked female and male dolls, snow on the ground, and a camera?" -- A rather risqué (and hilariously absurd) education on sexual relationships of course! (and now a book well!) Listen as Katsumi Saiki talks about his love of photography and sex from Ken and Mary's Sex Education from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 112
