There was a man called Gocho Shigeo 1946-1983
Date : October 1st , 2016 (Saturday) - December 28th, (Wednesday)

There was a photographer called Gocho Shigeo. He left this world prematurely at the age of 36. Nevertheless, he gained a lot of attention; During the 1970s, a fertile period that saw a variety of new photographic expressions and in whose development and deployment he played an important role.
This exhibition traces the ways Gocho was looking at the world, from his earliest works until his premature death by presenting selected monochrome images from series such as ‘Every day’, ‘Childhood’ and ‘SELF AND OTHERS’. In recent years Gocho has become the subject of re-evaluation and we hope that you, too, in the world he shows us, (re-)discover yourself in the ‘other’.
