Masahisa Fukase: Solitude of Ravens

A round up of important press

Masahisa Fukase's masterful series 'Solitude of Ravens has gone on display at the Michael Hoppen Gallery, London, until the 23rd April. Here we look at what people have been saying about this incredible exhibition and highlight some of the key press articles. 

 

 

"Masahisa Fukase's sorrow seeps through his later photographs like a poison: painful, suffocating, and all consuming. For eight years, the JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHER OBSESSIVELY captured ravens in his native Hokkaido, vainly seeking an antidote to the venom of a failed marriage."

"One could argue that these are the saddest set of images ever created, but we should be aware that our reading of them is affected by the knowledge of why they were created. Yet even without that knowledge, each frame seems to contain some kind of pain."

 

- Phil Coomes, BBC

 

"THE JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHER’S DARK AND HAUNTING SERIES IS A CHRONICLE OF EMPTINESS AND OBSESSION"
