Artist – David Yamamoto


I find David Yamamoto’s photography to be unconventionally striking. His photography consists of deserted buildings, and I thought it was unique perspective that I have never seen before. His photos of the buildings were eerie and mysterious,it made you think were these buildings haunted or just deserted. When I googled David, he named these sets of photos his Recession Series.The Recession was when the economy went down, and many businesses had to close its doors, and his photography is the perfect way to showcase the Recession. It reminds me of the picture during the Great Depression, of the tired looking woman with all her children around her. I like the juxtaposition between the beauty of the desertion and the sadness behind the photo. The businesses all had to close down because of the recession, but the upside is that great photos were taken because of it.
