Born in 1992, Kanagawa, Japan. Currently lives and works in Tokyo and Kanagawa, Kenta Cobayashi regards photography as to question what it is to capture ‘truth’ and draws an outline of this question through a wide variety of approaches. He has had solo exhibitions Photographic Universe, Fotografia Europe, Chiostri di San Pietro (Reggio Emilia, 2019); Insectautomobilogy / What is an aesthetic? at G/P gallery (Tokyo, 2017), and his works have been featured in major group exhibitions such as TOKYO Before/After, The Japan Foundation, Toronto, (Canada 2018); Hello World―For the Post-Human Age, ART TOWER MITO (Ibaraki, 2018); GIVE ME YESTERDAY, Fondazione Prada (Milan, 2016). His works have been added to a collection at Asian Art Museum, San Francisco and the Japan Foundation. His latest photo book, Everything_2 will be published by Newfave in April, 2019.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
