Keiichi Tahara: Photosynthesis with Min Tanaka
September 9 (Saturday) - December 24 (Sunday), 2017

From the 1970s, the photographer Keiichi Tahara made the exploration of light a focus of dedicated effort. Until his passing due to illness this past June, Tahara had been making preparations for this exhibition which presents work created during a special collaboration with the dancer Min Tanaka from 1978 to 1980 and in 2016. It is the first time this work is being shown in Japan within an exhibition format.
