Iwata Nakayama Portfolio 2010

October 8, Sat. – November 20, Sun
Open hours: 12:00 – 20:00  closed on Mondays

Iwata Nakayama (1895-1949) established the Lacan Studio in New York in the 1920s, and subsequently moved to Paris, where he developed close relationships with Leonard Foujita and a coterie of Futurist artists. Upon his return to Japan he moved to Ashiya, where he founded a camera club in 1930 that brought him much acclaim. Nakayama’s experiments with darkroom techniques using a variety of materials allowed him to create multi-layered images that left a lasting impact on the history of modern Japanese photography.
This exhibition commemorates the publication of a portfolio of Nakayama’s work that was produced using dry photographic plates.
