Arty-Fact: The highly staged and melodramatic images conjure many references: 1950s Japanese cinema, the photographs of Nobuyoshi Araki, Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, and the erotic imagery of Ero Guro paintings. As outside observers, Formento & Formento's stylized images explore the dichotomies that embody modern Japan - blurring the aesthetics between tradition and the ultra-modern, fantasy and reality. The captivating tableaus exude a sense of tension, melancholy, and a quiet unease. Each image from "Japan Diaries" exists as if it were a still taken from a Japanese noir film, each solitary figure yearning for something unknown.
