Session Press is pleased to announce, “For the Sake of Future Days,” the first official monograph by distinguished conceptual artist Katsuhiro Saiki.

“For the Sake of Future Days” celebrates over a decade of art practice through installation, sculpture and photography by Saiki. Saiki challenges our perception to gain a new visual language through an ever-evolving use of the landscape, architecture and sky.

Embracing minimalist aesthetics and contemporary critical theories, Saiki continues to create conceptual photographic work and examines the possibility of photographic subjectivity in contemporary visual society.
