Join us on Thursday, August 20, 2015 for a book presentation: “In Osaka” by Yamasaki Ko-Ji. Publisher Emir Shabashvili will present the book and talk about “Provoke” photographers and about style/time relationship in photography. Yamasaki Ko-Ji is a Japanese photographer from Kobe who documents his daily life with street pictures taken in Osaka, where he works, and on the road between these two cities. The project, presented in 110 pictures in this volume, spans 10 years. Moody and grainy black and white pictures, both poetic and strange, bring Provoke-era style to present days, following rhythm of his contacts and final prints.
This event is kindly sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery. Participants will be able to sample some of their amazing craft beers during the event. Brooklyn Brewery is one of the largest craft breweries in the United States, producing a portfolio of traditional and experimental beers sure to impress any beer drinker.
