15 portraits of the Japanese macaque. This exhibition shows 15 black & white portraits of the Japanese macaque. Each image reveals itself as a meditative contemplation of an action, suspended. “Photography allows us to perceive with greater acuity than the reality of the moment. It makes for contemplative analysis.” says Lambert. Representing Japanese macaques in black and white is an aesthetic choice transcending conventional animal representations often produced in colour.  The colourless images offer a sculptural and timeless reading.

In 2014 he was given artistic freedom to conceive a work about Japan, in which he is conscious of his Western perception.

Exploring Japan was an old dream, a dream to enter a new land where he knew he was going to be shocked by the modern. This was a world that had evolved hidden and separate for a while, and then catapulted itself into the modern world at unprecedented speed whilst retaining its separate, parallel, and unique conception of life. The reality was stronger than the idea he had, more subtle and sometimes impenetrable. 

Lambert's exploration moves beyond the cliché of the duality of the modern and the traditional. He is fascinated by the coexistence between nature and culture, and having the embodied experience of Japan has enabled him to find answers. He explores how to communicate his experience and reflections through visual representation; photography is the stable vehicle of information, a fertile soil for reflection.

The images exhibited show Lambert's focus on harmony and the opposition between natural elements and architecture. His reflective vision evokes illusions, yet reveals a futuristic world that is at the same time real, in which singular environments coexist.
