    Michael looks ahead to an exciting year for the gallery February 23, 2016

    We have been busy in Japan again and have some wonderful new work to show to you in London this year.
     
    We are so proud to be able to bring Solitude of Ravens to our gallery. It has been a quest of mine for the past six years to exhibit this body of work.  And now finally it is hanging in our gallery and hope you will make the journey and come to see it.

    We have found that many more museums across Europe and America are also enjoying the fruits of Japanese photographers and our belief is still that it is not only some of the most interesting work to look at and collect, but it is of such quality and so beautifully produced, it still amazes us as to why it has taken so long to be embraced.

    Masahisa Fukase's 'Bukubuku' to go on display at the Tate Modern January 27, 2016

     

    Masahisa Fukase’s unique series Bukubuku will be part of Tate Modern’s new exhibition ‘Performing for the Camera’.

     

    Serious performance art, portraiture, or just simply posing for the camera? What does is it mean to perform for the camera? 

     

    From marketing and self-promotion, to the investigation of gender and identity, to experiments with the self-portrait, Performing for the Camera brings together over 500 images shown in series, including vintage prints, large scale works, marketing posters and artists working with Instagram. It is a wide-ranging exploration of how performance artists use photography and how photography is in itself a performance.
