Miho Kajioka: So it goes, so it goes
the(M) éditions & Ibasho, 2020
Miho Kajioka was delighted and very surprised that her book ‘so it goes’ won the ‘Prix Nadar’ in 2019. This book edition has smaller sizes and a new cover with Kajioka’s own lips.
In this publication, Kajioka presents a work relating to the concepts of time, memory and place. As in her previous works, ‘so it goes, so it goes’ reveals intuitive images of fragments of daily life at different times. It was while reading Kurt Vonnegut’s novel, ‘Slaughterhouse-five’, that Kajiokabecame really interested in this subject. Kajioka has long been fascinated by the chronologyand meaning of events. According to her, photography captures moments and freezes them;posting impressions is like playing with the sense of time and getting lost in its timeline.
