Akiko Takizawa, winner of the HSBC award for photography 2014 | BIP 2014

“Akiko’s photographs seemed to sear through

layers of time rather than just capturing fleeting

photographic moments. Their composition,

though meticulously considered within a formal

picture plane, hinted at a whole world of otherness

swirling chaotically beyond their borders.

For Akiko it was essential to bring her images

to life by locating and harnessing mediums

that could take her images directly to the place

where they naturally belonged.”
