This event has ended.

This solo exhibition by Hiroshi Nomura follows on from his previous show at the gallery, “Doppelopment,” held in March this year.
Doppelopment is a term Nomura coined based on a combination of the German word “doppelgänger,” which refers to an apparition or double of a living person, and the English word “development,” here connoting the photographic process known as developing.
Nomura created a girl named Nana through a process of “Doppel-development,” which involved photographing his real daughter, Hana, multiple times in the same spot and compositing the images. The fact that photographs tell lies is something that is understood by most these days, but Nomura’s photographs also act as a truthful reference, quoting works by renowned photographers such as Diane Arbus and Shigeo Gocho, who were known for their images of twins. When presented in the form of a beautiful monochrome print, it is still possible for us to accept that what is reflected in the photograph is “true,” even in the modern age of digital technology.
