Sixteen hour darkroom marathon…
Very cool !
Caught the first of a two-part Robert Frank show at Gallery Bauhaus the other night- It’s an exhibition of prints from his Japanese-published book The Lines of My Hand.
The 600 yen admission fee is worth it- the prints/images are wonderful and they even have copies of some extremely rare Robert Frank books on hand as well to look (gently!) through- original (?) 1972 1st editions of The Lines of My Hand (marked down to 200,00 yen/$2000 from 300,000yen/$3,000) as well as a limited edition portfolio of some of Frank’s contact sheets from The Americans.
Chances to see Franks work up close and in such an intimate setting shouldn’t be missed.
Where: Gallery Bauhaus
(near JR Ochanomizu station, next to Kanda Myojin Shrine- google street view)
When: April 2nd to April 27th (gallery is closed Sundays and Mondays)

It sounds well worth a visit, I wanna go !

“Many of the essentials of modern photography were learned in the postwar period from Yasuhiro Ishimoto, who brought them from the United States when he returned to Japan. Although it might have been possible to learn the philosophy and techniques of modern photography from someone else, I would like to make clear that without Ishimoto we would never have achieved today’s photography.” -Shoji Yamagishi, New Japanese Photography, 1974
