Artist’s Statement: This is a ShootAir group photography exhibition. Most members of this group are of Japanese background and live in the Bay Area. We hold quarterly workshops, inviting San Francisco-based Japanese photographer Hiroyo Kaneko as the group’s instructor.

“You, Me, In-between” exhibits color and black-and-white photographs from various members of the group. The photographic content varies from landscapes to snapshots. “You” represents a viewer’s face, while “me” represents a photographer, through photos of objects “in between.” A photographer (“me”) faces the photographic subject, attempting to capture “something” between them in a photo. On the other side, a viewer (“you”) faces the photographer, trying to find or understand the “something” in the photo that the photographer has captured. “You” and “me” are thus connected through the photos of the “some things” “in between.”
