Hitoshi Toyoda is a self-taught photographer who has worked exclusively in the medium of slideshows for the past ten years. These silent slideshows consist of images taken in the course of his daily life. While the material is taken from the past, the presentation of one image after another, appearing and disappearing, places emphasis on the weight and value of the present moment. His silent slideshows have been compared to haiku because of the way they encompass both the minutiae of daily life and larger, unknowable forces that govern that life. Toyoda only exhibits his work in live contexts, clicking though the slides manually.
