Foto-Care Gallery presents “Land”, a solo exhibition by Uruma Takezawa (*1977), one of Japan's rising stars in the field of photography, and the recently announced Grand Prize Winner of the third Nikkei National Geographic Photo Prize. This marks Takewaza's first exhibition in the United States. The show will present over 40 photographs by Takezawa, including seven large-scale works, which explore and document the vast diversity of the world's people and communities.
The show is an official program of “Shashin: Photography from Japan,” a new multi-institution initiative that will take place in New York City in April and May 2015 aimed to raise awareness of photography from Japan in New York, and to stimulate discussion and an exchange of ideas among academics, students, art collectors, photographers, and the general public.
