Monodramatic

Mono2In theatre, a monodramatic is a piece for only one performer. In the hands of Japanese photographer Daisuke Takakura, it means cloning one figure into a riveting medley of personalities, actions and perspectives.

Sometimes, the figures in his surreal series Monodramatic are packed together, differentiated by expression and gestures.

In larger areas, body posture or large movement is the distinguishing factor.

Takakura describes the series as an exploration of the idea of self, how one person sees themselves and interacts with others in many different ways. See more on Takakura’s website, here.
