The Fondazione Sozzani presents “Masahisa Fukase, Private Scenes”, the first retrospective exhibition of the Japanese photographer in Italy, curated by Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam in collaboration with Tomo Kosuga, director of the Masahisa Fukase Archives.
The life-work of Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase (Hokkaido, 1934 – Tokyo, 2012) remained largely inaccessible for over two decades, following a tragic fall that left the artist with permanent brain damage. After his death the archives were gradually disclosed, revealing a wealth of material that had never been shown before.
In this present large-scale retrospective that was presented at Foam in Amsterdam, will be shown original prints from Masahisa Fukase Archives in Tokyo. In addition to his seminal body of work Ravens, the exhibition contains a number of important photo series, publications and documentation dating from the early 1960s to 1992.
