This event has ended.

Inspired by Garry Winogrand’s photo book “Women Are Beautiful”, published in 1975, in which a male artist admired women from a heterosexual viewpoint, Kura pays homage to these photographs, by capturing men she finds attractive walking around town. Yet here we are not met by a simple role reversal, but instead confront a gender gap which has become ever more complex and invisibly restrictive. Kura, not only as a photographer, faces the reality seriously as a woman, living in such a situation and keeps clicking the shutter. The exhibition will present 30 color photographs.
