Last June, the Taka Ishii gallery, one of the largest in Japan, opened a space in Paris dedicated to Japanese photography and to vintage and contemporary photobooks. The Tokyo gallery, divided into three spaces, features the work of some of the masters of photography Garry Winogrand, Larry Clark, Nobuyoshi Araki, Daido Moriyama as well as up-and-coming Western artists like Thomas Demand, Dan Graham, Elmgreen & Dragset and Cerith Wyn Evans, building a bridge between the avant-gardes of the past and the present. Following Shomei Tomatsu and Keiichi Tahara, the Taka Ishii gallery in Paris will be exhibiting the luminous work of the young photographer Yosuke Takeda (b. 1982) through November 29th. The next exhibition, which runs from December 4th to January 24th, will feature Takashi Hamaguchi’s reports on the student revolts in the 1960s Japan.
