Photographs by Hiroko Inoue.
Foil, 2009. 92 pp., 60 color illustrations, 8x10½".
‘Inside-Out’ presents the fruits of a ten year long investigation into the windows found
in various psychiatric institutions, hospitals, sanatoriums, first aid camps,
concentration camps and juvenile prisons. In so doing, Hiroki Inoue focuses at the
same time on the memories of the scenes where tragic events occurred and the
physical spaces where people currently live. The viewer is charmed by the melodious
beauty of the monochrome contrast of light and shade that is framed and filtered by
the windows while being constantly reminded of the painful confines of institutional
space. A total of 60, thought-provoking, colour photographs are presented one to a
page or over double spreads and accompanied by a short essay by Reiko Kokatsu.
