Reiko Imoto : ‘Visions of The Other Side’ Series (Photography)

Shomei Tomatsu : Photography Series

Tomatsu’s radical approach – his freeform, expressionist style, odd camera angles, strange cropping and framing – has been reappraised and he is now seen, ironically enough, as one of the pioneers of the Provoke era. He is famously reclusive and has never ventured outside Japan.
