Another language, eight japanese photographers at The Rencontres d’Arles 2015
Another Language: Eight Japanese Photographers presents significant bodies of work by Masahisa Fukase, Eikoh Hosoe, Kou Inose, Daido Moriyama, Masatoshi Naito, Sakiko Nomura, Issei Suda and Daisuke Yokota. The exhibition is comprised of over 200 prints, both vintage and contemporary, which, for the most part, have never previously been seen in Europe.
Another Language takes as its starting point the historic and influential exhibition New Japanese Photography, organised at MoMA in New York by John Szarkowski and Shoji Yamagishi in 1974, and which presented the best of
Japanese photography to an American audience for the first time: introducing figures like Hosoe, Moriyama, and Shomei Tomatsu, who would come to be regarded as the most important of their generation.
