From 6 to 22 of February, 2008 at Vilnius photography gallery runs the photo exhibition „Nocturnal Shadows“ by young Japanese photographer, currently living and working in Lithuania, Kensaku Shioya .
The photographer’s action and his point of view, stern from the use of nocturnal camera with infrared sensor which evolved from photo technology originally conceived in the living world of light, the targets portrayed by Kensaku Shioya, are the natural faces of the night in their own unique colours, which cross and emerge without being slain by the power of lights.
Like cats wondering in the night with freedom, people hidden from moon light and entering in to conversation, and architectural forms in growing amorous colours, Kensaku Shioya keeps dyeing his mind in the dark of the night and taking photos of the gentle and warm world.
