In the first overseas solo exhibition to be devoted to his works since the mid-1980s, a selection of Takanashi’s works from the period 1963 – 1974 will be featured.
Yutaka Takanashi was one of the co-founders of the legendary 'Provoke' group which revolutionised Japanese photography at the end of the 1960s. Other members of this group included Daido Moriyamya and Takuma Nakahira.
The works in this exhibition were published by Yutaka Takanashi in 1974 in the two-part volume 'Toshi-e' (Towards the City). This elaborate publication marked both the high-water mark and the end of the 'Provoke' era.
