Masahisa Fukase: Solitude Of Ravens: February 24 – April 23, 2016 
A painful divorce inspired Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase’s work, on display at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London later this month. Solitude of Ravens, the artist’s first UK exhibition, is an ensemble of vintage and early prints created between 1976 and 1982, conveying new ideas about darkness and grief through anthropomorphic representations of the raven. Fukase expressed towards the end of the project that he himself had "become a raven" – an idea even more poignant given that, at times in the series, the animal is reduced to nothing more than a shadow.
