poster for Hiroh Kikai "Tokyo Portraits"

This event has ended.

Born in 1945 in Yamagata prefecture, Hiroh Kikai studied philosophy at university and then worked as a truck driver, crew member of a tuna fishing boat and various other odd jobs. An encounter with the work of Diane Arbus proved to be a decisive turning point, after which he decided to pursue photography starting in 1969.

This exhibition showcases some 200 black and white portraits of people and cities from his "Persona" and "Tokyo Labyrinth" series.

相変わらず、モノクロプリントのトーンをどんなミクロな場所にも見出すことができる。言葉では言い尽くせない、吐きそうなほどの感覚である。これらを次々に目の当たりにできるのは、やはり特別な体験と言わなければならない。
