The exhibition featured ”Magnetic Vision," the latest in Yahagi's ongoing explorations into the realm of visual perception, a quest that began with "Shot by Sight" in 1988. In defiance of the rule of a magnifying glass, in his works the world within the lens frame is compressed in a way that incorporates the surrounding scenery, creating a broader image in which the outer perimeter is magnetically pulled into the central focus. By arousing this perception of the framed image continuing seamlessly with its surroundings, Yahagi endeavors to approach closely the world as we consciously view it.
