Motoyuki Daifu, "Lovesody"
Tokyo-based artist Motoyuki Daifu debuts his first solo show at Lombard Freid Projects with "Lovesody," a portmanteau of love and rhapsody. This series of photographs chronicles the artist's affair with a young mother of two children, showcasing a series of portraits filled with energy, color, and honesty about the rewards and hardships that come with raising children. As Daifu writes:
I met her when she was only twenty years old.
She already had a two-year-old boy and was pregnant again.
I fell in love with her at first sight.
A girl - and a mother.
She had two characters in herself.
I had never met a girl like her- a girl full of motherly love.
This is our six month lovesody.
Through March 3 at Lombard Freid Projects, 518 W 19th St. For more information, go HERE.
