In case you missed it during the madness of Paris Photo / Offprint, I have guest curated a show of contemporary Japanese photography at the ArtLigue gallery in the Marais with work by Kenji Hirasawa, Taisuke Koyama, Koji Onaka, Seiji Shibuya, Ryo Suzuki, Yu Yamauchi, and Daisuke Yokota. It’s on until the end of the month so do check it out if you have the chance.
