Christopher Köller: Floating Worlds
5 Dec 2007 -
26 Jan 2008
Floating Worlds is Köller’s photographic investigation of the contemporary Japanese surfing subculture, compiled during a residency at the Australia Council’s Tokyo studio in 2003.
Köller’s photographs and videos document the emergence of surfing images on advertising billboards throughout the city as evidence of a shift in perception of surfing, from a transgressive subculture to a major thread in the contemporary Japanese imagination.
