Born in Tokyo in 1968, Kenji Aoki spent his formative years training and learning about design at the Kuwasawa Design School, which he chose for its Bauhaus-style philosophy of education. Having taken a comprehensive approach to design, it was photography that made the strongest impact on him. Aoki credits this to having learned the lessons of using a camera as a tool of ‘expression’ rather than one of ‘recreation’. For Aoki it was not the sculptures of Rodin in museums, nor the view from the top of Everest that inspired him, it was “a normal coffee cup at home”. An ordinary object that could be found anywhere became the source for Aokis photography, as he soon realised he could change his view of an object to see something new, finally allowing him to become a person of ‘expression’.
