GR2: Fri Oct 10 7PM - Mikiko Hara Photo Slide Show + Book Signing
Giant Robot 2 2062 Sawtelle Blvd LA, CA 90025
Join us in welcoming Mikiko Hara to GR2. She'll be visiting as part of her Getty exhibition, In Focus Tokyo and will present a slide show of her work. She'll also be signing copies of her new book and we'll have them available at GR2. This slideshow will be a shorter version of her presentation that is scheduled at the Japan Foundation.
From the Getty website, "Although a kaleidoscopic vision would seem to be required to represent the hyperreal megalopolis of Tokyo, the four Japanese photographers in this exhibition have found a way to portray their city at a human scale. Mikiko Hara adopts a quiet, daylit, snapshot style for spontaneous portraits of her young contemporaries; Daido Moriyama haunts the burgeoning neighborhood of Shinjuku for fragments of nightlife; Shigeichi Nagano observes the interactions of community within a perpetually rebuilt environment; and Masato Seto focuses on the hard-won leisure of local couples escaping the cramped quarters of high-rise living.
