© Kanako Sasaki
Sasaki's images from her series "Wanderlust" play off ideas from novels, paintings, and the artist's childhood memories. Most from the series include a female in a large scale environment. The resulting images, aesthetically, are ethereal and dreamlike, justly capturing a childlike nostalgia. The feeling that pervades the images, however, is one of being trapped. Some of the images show a girl in unplaceable locations; others show a girl laying face down, possibly physically impaired and seemingly apathetic. The figure is trapped in the mysterious locations by her own detachment and indifference.
