Alison Bradley Projects is pleased to introduce Japanese photographer Yusuke Yamatani (b. 1985) and his works to the United States for the first time. The private view will feature prints from his groundbreaking series "Tsugi no yoru e (Onto the next night)," shot in Osaka in 2010 with his community of friends in the skateboard and underground music scene. Also on view are several pieces from his series "Ground," a series of unique color images made of a club floor and then placed down to be danced upon and tracked, leaving abstracted traces of the night's revelry on the photographic print. The artist will be present for the reception at the gallery.
Additionally, Yamatani will be in conversation with Dr. Miwako Tezuka, Gallery Director of Japan Society, on Friday, April 17, as part of the VIP program of AIPAD, on the subject of the legacy of Japanese post-war photography and on the artist's relationship with the legendary Shomei Tomatsu.
Reception with the Artist: April 19, Sunday, 4:00pm to 7:00pm
