YOKAINOSHIMA at les Rencontres d’Arles

13 July 2016

After WILDER MANN, YOKAINOSHIMA is the second chapter of my research about rural masquerades in the world. The book came out last month in Japanese (Seigensha), English (Thames&Hudson), French (Actes Sud) and Italian (Peliti). It will take a few weeks before seeing the book in the good bookshops, and you can already find it online.

It’s also possible to discover some of my newest series at the Photographic center of Clermont-Ferrand (Hotel Fontfreyde). MARDI GRAS INDIANS, SIKH REGIMENT OF INDIA, PAINTED ELEPHANTS are facing WINNER FACE, OPERA, SHORT SCHOOL HAKA, QUEENS OF CEBU… And two videos are shown: VIS VOLUNTATIS and COMMEDIA DEL’ARTE

Most of my books are also presented in the show. You may find some you’ve never seen before.



22 February 2016

Opening at Fondation d’entreprise Hermès,
Le Forum, Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo.

A real good moment at the YOKAINOSHIMA show, curated by Reiko Setsuda with the help of the architect Jumpey Matsushima (JP, architect).
The show divided in two big rooms received a special scenography experimenting another way of showing this series.
It’s physical and pretty intuitive. A set of the WILDER MANN series is meeting for the first time the TOSHIGAMI of the YOKAINOSHIMA series…
The YOKAINOSHIMA BOOK will come out in two months with Thames & Hudson, in England and USA, SEIGENSHA in Japan, Actes Sud in France and Peliti in Italy.
ANd the series will be exhibited at the Les Rencontres de la photographie, Arles this summer! SO you’ll have more chance to discover this new series.
Until this, if you’re in Tokyo, you can discover the work at LE FORUM, GINZA, FONDATION HERMES in Tokyo from the 19th of february to the 15th of May.
I’ll send more views of the show very soon…
Mon-Sat 11:00-20:00 (Last entry 19:30), Sun 11:00-19:00 (Last entry 18:30)
