Eikoh Hosoe : Photography Series

::

“To me photography can be simultaneously a record and a ‘mirror’ or ‘window’ of self-expression. The camera is generally assumed to be unable to depict that which is not visible to the eye. And yet the photographer who wields it well can depict what lies unseen in his memory…” ~ Eikoh Hosoe

Eikoh Hosoe is one of Japan’s most notable post-war photographers and film-makers. Hosoe was born in 1933 in Yamagata prefecture, as Toshihio Hosoe. He changed his name to Eikoh after the Second World War, to symbolize the new Japan he was photographing. Hosoe’s photography is often collaborative or linked to one of his artist acquaintances. The series ‘Bara-kei’ (Ordeal by Roses) was created in 1962 with the famous writer Yukio Mishima as a model, and the 1969 series ‘Kamaitachi’ was created with dancer Tatsumi Hijikata as the model. Hosoe has also been a part of many artist groups and co-operations like Demokrato, VIVO, and Jazz Film Laboratory, which he founded. [Extract : M.H.G.]
