MEM is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Shigeo Gocho Part 2 “KODOMO”.

Shigeo Gocho (1946-1983) produced three photography compilations, “Days,” “Self and Others,” and “Familiar Street Scenes,” as well as one art book during his short lifetime. His deceptively plain-seeming works continue to captivate generations of viewers for their unique aesthetic sense rooted in Gocho’s unusual eye for the moments in everyday life when it becomes difficult to distinguish between oneself and others.
For the 30th memorial year of Gocho’s death, both a new edition of “Familiar Street Scenes” and “Children,” a new compilation of Gocho’s works, will be published. To celebrate the release of these books, MEM presents a two-part exhibition of Gocho’s work. Part 2 showcases 25 gelatin silver prints from his various photo book collections including “Days”, “Self and Others” and “Childhood”, along with the most recent publication “Kodomo”.
