Ikko Narahara Photographs: The Promised Journey to Spain

Overview

Ikko Narahara (b. 1931) was at the forefront of the new photography movement that emerged in Japan after World War II. Although Narahara’s series ' Europe: Where Time Has Stopped', dating from the 1960s, depicts a tranquil, solemn world, this exhibition focuses on the series ' España: Gran Tarde , an uncommon work from the same period. This large group of photographs, overflowing with the energy of bullfighting and festivals, and the sunshine of Andalusian in southern Spain, were shot between 1962 and 1965 while Narahara was living in Europe. In 1969, they were published in an eponymous photo book. In addition to a selection of approximately 120 monochrome works from the series, the exhibition features Mitsuo Katsui’s (b. 1931) design for the book.
