In Imasaka’s photographic investigation of urban space in New York and Chicago, he has found a unique perspective on the tall buildings that create these cities skylines. Shooting straight up between adjacent tall buildings towards the sky, he creates a narrow vista, like a long tunnel, that ends in open sky; up and down are reversed and the viewer feels as if he were standing over a bottomless abyss. The view is unsettling and generates a sense of vertigo. His impressive large-scale black and white prints monumentalize that uneasy loss of equilibrium. [extract : chelsea west gallery]
