Akio Nagasawa Gallery Ginza is pleased to present SAYOKO, a solo exhibition by Noriaki Yokosuka.

Noriaki Yokosuka (1937-2003) embarked on his career as a commercial photographer,
being recognized for his talent during his college years.
Since then, he has been active both in Japan and internationally,
and enthusiastically engaged in creative activities as a photographer.

In 1963, he received Newcomer Awards from the Photographic Society of Japan and
from the Japan Photo Critics Association respectively for “Mode-in” and “Kuro.”
Other works unveiled in the 1960s and 70s include “Shafts,” “Nude,”
“Optics” and “Cave,” followed in the 1980s by “Sayoko” and “Luna,”
two Kodansha Publication Culture Award winning series of photographs of the fashion model Sayoko Yamaguchi.
In 1989, “A Case of Exposure” received an Ina Nobuo Award.
In the 1990s, Yokosuka published “Jikan no niwa,” a series of solarized color photographs capturing scenes from
internationally acclaimed Bauhaus master Oskar Schlemmer’s dance piece “Triadic Ballet;”
“Eros no heya,” employing the early 20th century technique of platinum printing; and
“Enantiomer,” drawing from all available photographic techniques.
Unpublished works include the “Homage to Man Ray” series of photographs of originally created art objects.

This exhibition will feature the SAYOKO series, which was exhibited at Shiseido in 1984.
Each photograph is composed of a unique vintage print.
Akio Nagasawa Gallery Ginza is also currently holding the exhibition "Sayoko" by Noriaki Yokosuka from June 13 - July 27.

We look forward to your visit.
