HIROSHI WATANABE: THE DAY THE DAM COLLAPSES

California-based Japanese photographer Hiroshi Watanabe has released his latest body of work: The Day the Dam Collapses. Unusual for Watanabe (and you know this if you’re a fan), this new drop consists of digital snapshots taken over the course of 5 years—since his son was born and he had to replace his Hasselblad with diapers and milk bottles.

 

The series has a few gravitating visual metaphors that paint a plethora of dwindling life cycles and desolate beauty reigning as a focal point. In other words, we’re all gonna die but life is precious, fragile. Grab your copy here, but more importantly, take in this interview with the artist we found on Lens Scratch.
