Born in the south of Brazil and raised between there and the UK, photographer Gui Martinez is currently based in Tokyo but considers the world his studio. For this solo exhibition at Hikarie in Shibuya, Martinez showcases a collection of photographs that reflect his ever-present feeling of nostalgia.
“Usually, this bittersweet feeling comes to me when I recall places I’ve been to, or people I’ve met, but sometimes it’s triggered by other people, whether it’s through a simple conversation or an intricate piece of artwork,” says Martinez. “It’s as if I feel nostalgic for their memories and experiences, which I myself have not lived. It’s a kind of longing for things outside of myself; for situations and people that I have not yet had the chance to encounter and grow from. This being what my spirit thrives on, I can’t help but feel a sense of loss for these undiscovered experiences.”
“Out of Reach” features images that pass on and share this sense of curiosity and longing for experiences both within and beyond our reach.
