All the World's A Sunny Day

Takashi Yasumura ShortcakephotographTakashi Yasumura's photographs seem a little too set-up for me, but I still enjoyed this exhibit at Yossi Milo gallery. A little Stephen Shore with a dash of William Eggleston, these large images document domestic scenes at Yasumura's parents' middle-class home in Japan. The juxtaposition of objects and clashing colors kept me looking and made me smile, as did the intense Kodachrome-like colors. (Images via Yossi Milo gallery)
