Clair Galerie, Munich
A selection of images from the exhibition are available here
For over fifty years, internationally acclaimed photographer Eikoh Hosoe has been producing cutting edge works demonstrating a unique mastery of the photographic medium. Early on in his career he abandoned the documentary style prevalent in the post-war years and produced work that breathed a sense of experimentation and freedom into photography. By calling on mythology, metaphor and symbolism his images broke the bounds of traditional photography. Hosoe developed a unique style situated at the crossroads of several different art forms, combining photography with elements of theatre, dance, film and traditional Japanese art. To this day he continues to push the boundaries of photographic expression. This exhibition, in collaboration with the Munich gallery, Clair, includes a selection of silver-gelatin prints from his most acclaimed series: Man and Woman, Kimono, Barakei (Ordeal by Roses) and Kamaitachi.
