Naoki Ishikawa Capturing the Map of Light on This Planet
December 17, 2016, to February 26, 2017
This is the first large-scale solo exhibition by Naoki Ishikawa, a photographer who is active around the globe. Ishikawa completed a human-powered journey from the North Pole to the South Pole at the age of 22, succeeded in summiting the Seven Summits at 23, and continues to journey to diverse places. He has drawn much attention by shedding new light on our everyday and on the world through his unique style of photography, which integrates the perspectives of anthropology and folklore.
In this exhibition Ishikawa’s early works through the present—numerous series including ones on polar regions, Himalayan eight-thousanders and old-growth forests in New Zealand; CORONA, in which he visited Polynesian islands as if guided by the stars; NEW DIMENSION, in which he visited cave paintings around the world; and ARCHIPELAGO, in which he explored the islands that spread north–south in the Japanese archipelago, among others—are introduced in a comprehensive fashion, interwoven with his unpublished works.
