This Saturday, 6–8 pm: Gallery Luisotti is pleased to announce the exhibition Toshio Shibata: Japanscapes, co-curated with Maya Ishiwata. This is Shibata's fifth solo exhibition with the gallery and marks the 20th anniversary of his first exhibition in 1997. For over four decades, Toshio Shibata has focused his camera on Japan’s built environment. Noted for his large-scale black-and-white photographs of infrastructural projects, Shibata has lately turned to color photography. Gallery Luisotti will feature his most recent work, several examples of which were published in the photographer’s 2017 monograph Japanscapes (London: The Velvet Cell, 2017). With Japanscapes, Shibata’s camera not only revels in the abstract qualities of Japanese infrastructure, but also in the palette and texture of the natural landscape such infrastructure seeks to restrain.
