Eight Japanese Photographers: Masahisa Fukase, Eikoh Hosoe, Kou Inose, Daido Moriyama, Masatoshi Naito, Sakiko Nomura, Issei Suda, Daisuke Yokota
This exhibition is comprised of over 200 prints, both vintage and contemporary, which, for the most part, have never previously been seen in Europe. There are new and unseen bodies of work by some of the best‐known practitioners, like Hosoe and Moriyama; key works by lesser‐known but equally important historic figures like Fukase, Inose, Naito and Suda. From precise formal compositions, to landscapes, street photography, and theatrical performance, from the 1960s to the present day, Another Language offers a new perspective on photography in Japan, from the known to the unknown, the classic to the avant‐garde.
