“Kenji Hirasawa’s Celebrity is one of those rare photography series that you fall in love with instantly. The photographs are a perfect and very simple metaphor for our relationship to celebrities - real people (us) attempting to interact with dreams (them). To say that the cult of celebrity is the worship of empty people is obvious, but to show it is brilliant. The point is clear: look to yourself for vitality and meaning, not phantasms." - Erik Kessels, 2011
