poster for "Ihee Kimura and Henri Cartier-Bresson" Exhibition

This event has ended.

Despite living and working in different continents, Ihee Kimura and Henri Cartier-Bresson have equal importance as photographers that have opened the possibilities of modern photographic expression. They both used a Leica to cut out scenes of everyday life that incorporated elements that are universal. Yet the difference in place did also have undeniable though subtle influences.

This exhibition allows the audience not only to enjoy the works of the two great masters but also to compare the universal and the individual. More than 150 photographs from the museum collection and collections from elsewhere are on view.

になぜこのタイミングで二人展を行うのかというところがポイントとなると思いますが、それは展示の最初のキャプションに書かれているように「近代的な写真表現が絶対的普遍的でありながら、同時にきわめて相対的個別的なもの」であり、そのモチーフとしてこの巨匠たちの作品が選ばれたのだと思います。

変に気負ってもいないし、ウジウジしてもいない。直観力に満ちた木村伊兵衛で日本の近代(現代)写真史が始まったことは、とても幸せなことだ。
