Ruinart Japan Award 2023 Winner

Presented by Ruinart

Scenography by Miho Odaka (APLUS DESIGNWORKS)

Tetsuo Kashiwada (b. 1988) engages with the people and natural landscapes he encounters on his travels, using photography to explore questions or feelings of unease that arise. In his work, he addresses environmental issues and the separation and coexistence of humankind and nature. He has won several awards, including the Grand Prize of the YPF Photo Awards in 2022, the Japan Photo Award in 2021, and an Honourable Mention at the 43rd New Cosmos of Photography in 2020. His work is frequently shown in solo and group exhibitions such as the Yakushima International Photo Festival in Yakushima and the OFF GRID – Independent Photo Festival Vienna (both in 2022). In 2023, Kashiwada won the Ruinart Japan Award, selected by the jury of the KYOTOGRAPHIE International Portfolio Review from among the participating artists. As part of the award, he joined Ruinart’s artist residency programme in the autumn of 2023, where he created artworks in daily dialogue with local nature and Ruinart’s forests and vineyards. For KYOTOGRAPHIE 2024, Kashiwada weaves together history, environmental issues and artefacts from his residency in an installation-based photographic exhibition.
