Cozue Takagi

b. 1985, Nagano, Japan

Being one of the most prominent young Japanese artists, Cozue Takagi stands out for her provocative imagery and rich visual density of her works. Her method is to scan a group of negatives photographed on film and to convert the monochrome images into colored ones. The images are then digitally mixed as collages. Takagi won the 35th Kimura Ihei Memorial Photography Award this year with her most recognized ground series.

Takagi currently lives and work in Nagano, Japan.
