Vita / Lebenslauf:

Ms. Hidemi Takagi was born in Kyoto, Japan. From 1995 until 1997, she worked as an assistant photographer for commercial Photo studio, in Osaka, Japan. She arrived in the United States in 1997. She attended the International Center of Photography as well as the National Academy of Design, both in New York City. Recent exhibitions have been at: The Bronx Museum (Bronx, NY), The Dollinger Art Project (Tel Aviv, Israel), Hudson Guild Gallery (NYC, NY), Dumbo Arts Center (Brooklyn, NY), and White Columns (NYC, NY).

She was also accepted in the Artists in the marketplace program 2003 (AIM 23) at the Bronx Museum of the Arts and NYFA (The New York Foundation for the Arts)'s Immigrant Outreach program for New York-based immigrant artists. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York


Statement "Blender" Project:


Nowhere is there such an intersection of cultures as in New York City. As an immigrant who has lived in New York for 10 years, traveling among the five boroughs using public transportation is still fascinating and exciting; being in this city can feel like visiting another country. People celebrate the customs and holidays of their country by wearing folk costumes on the street. Awnings with messages in entirely unfamiliar alphabets are completely common. Many of them advertise goods catering to specific nationalities and cultures, especially foods that were brought here or requested by immigrants living in neighborhoods like Brighton Beach, Jackson Heights, or Flushing. The packaging of these products is a form of art that tells stories and helps remind people that their culture is alive. In this way, immigrants in New York City can prevent the fading of identification with their native culture.

Blender is my ongoing project in which I investigate the diverse immigrant cultures in New York City. The project includes photos of the packaging of food products from various neighborhoods with a large immigrant influence accompanied by texts (short stories as well as notes on the history, culture, and trivia relating to immigrant-heavy areas), maps, and a website. Im showing photos and presenting short texts on the New York City neighborhoods where the photographed food products can be found. The look of these food packages often has an old-fashioned feel: bright, saturated colors and outmoded designs that are rare in both Japan, where Im from, and America, where I now live. Through this project I hope to show that art can transcend time and language even through the simplest imagery found on a candy wrapper. Blender is a lens into New York's immigrant communities and cultures.


Statement Happie Photographie:

When I was a little girl in Japan, I saw the Movie American Graffiti on TV.

I was amazed by the color in the film,
everybody was dressed in bright clothes, all of the cars and furniture was extremely colorful. I felt it was very America and it filled me with happy feelings.


In 1997, I moved to New York, again found these bright colors.my America. Many people say that my photographs seem like they come from another city. But I mostly shoot in New York.
