Hiroshi Hamaya - A Chronicle of Grief and Anger
Jul 08, 2017 — Aug 12, 2017
Taka Ishii Gallery Photography / Film is pleased to present “A Chronicle of Grief and Anger,” a solo exhibition of works
by Hiroshi Hamaya. Since the 1930s, Hamaya has captured, with penetrating perspective, the relations between people, their culture and environment. He sternly confronted the documentary aspect of photography and produced numerous valuable photographic records of his era. This exhibition will feature approximately 22 works from his book "A Chronicle of Grief and Anger" (Kawade Shobo Shinsha, 1960), which comprises photographs documenting the anti-Japan-US Security Treaty struggles shot over a one-month period.
