New York - Yasumasa Yonehara Retrospective

30 november 2006, 7:18am

New York mag dan misschien aan de andere kant van dat groot stuk plas liggen dat ons Oude continent scheidt van the Shining World of All Things New, Yasumasa Yonehara's foto's zijn zo verdomd goed dat je nu al op een vliegtuig had moeten zitten om de race met het tijdsverschil aan te gaan en gespot te worden in wat zowat de meest gesoigneerde zweterige-massa-in-een-kleine-ruimte zal zijn van dit deel van de aardbol vanavond...

We're hosting an exhibition at the Reed Space NY for one of our favorite current Japanese photographers, Yasumasa Yonehara. While the rest of the country has spent the better part of the last decade trying to recreate Hiromix's high school diary for the umpteenth time, he's one of the few who've actually branched out and started taking photos that tackle Japan's increasingly complex socio-sexual issues--in his case by means of shooting picture after picture of half-naked girls. The show opens tonight at 9 with the expected free drinks and sidewalk spillover and runs to the beginning of January. Please RSVP to mrreed@stapledesign.com for the opening--space is cramped and limited.
