Eikoh Hosoe in Munich

CLAIR Gallery is pleased to present a collection of stunning photography by Eikoh Hosoe. The exhibition will be held at the Munich gallery.

For over fifty years, internationally acclaimed photographer Eikoh Hosoe has been producing cutting edge works demonstrating a unique mastery of the photographic medium. Early on in his career he abandoned the documentary style prevalent in the post-war years and produced work that breathed a sense of experimentation and freedom into photography. By calling on mythology, metaphor and symbolism his images broke the bounds of traditional photography. Hosoe developed a unique style situated at the crossroads of several different art forms, com- bining photography with elements of theatre, dance, film and traditional Japanese art. To this day he continues to push the boundaries of photographic expression.            Marc Feustel, curator of Japanese photography, Studio Equis
