Satoshi Saïkusa was born in 1959 in Japan. He moved to Paris in the mid-1980s and consequently started an international photographer career. His artistic practice is characterized by meticulous compositions, carefully planned and adjusted like filmmakers seeking for the perfect moment.
During the last decade, Satoshi Saïkusa has developed personal projects in which the themes of night, memory and the fragility of being appear recurrently. Whether he works on series of nudes, of still lives or portraits of artists, dancers, yakuzas, the Buddhist concept of impermanence seems to dialogue incessantly with that of memento mori.
