(…) Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur in Cologne focuses on serial portraits that follow an artistic-documentary approach. The institution with its August Sander Archive and its central position in the field of documentary photography thus follows up on its programmatic orientation. On the one hand, the exhibition includes portraits from the institution’s own collection on the basis of the premise “A Look at the Collection” on the other hand they invited nine photographers from four continents to contribute extracts from their work. Both parts of the exhibition present an exciting approach to the genre of the portrait. Merely typological pictures alternate with narrative portraits, the static picture with the moving picture. It constantly becomes apparent how August Sander has had an international impact both methodically and in regard to content and how he has influenced portrait photography as a source of inspiration.

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…
