Publisher's Description
Until now, Yokota has used various techniques of photographic development such as high temperature development, retouching through Photoshop, and duplication. Further more, he builds his images with accidental effects like using a form of noise by which dust adheres on molten photographic emulsion and the film's surface as with his work themed upon updating the information of the image. Those images which were multiplied through so many techniques have a scabby texture that stimulates the viewer's aesthesis via a disquieting impression. As a result of this technical development, he closes up the medium itself that constructs photography, and could bring it to fruition as his workbringing new fruition to his work.

His most recent book Vertigo, which takes its title from thegreat suspense film by Alfred Hitchcock, could be said to be a series that perceptively expresses Yokota's sought after aspects, and it is a kind of evolutionary consequence of Back Yard, his previous collection. We are treated in Vertigo to a connection point between photography and other visual arts, such as painting and film, from Yokota's new approach (which, though always present hadn't been seen in his work before with such clarity).
