MISAKO & ROSEN is pleased to announce our third exhibition with photographer Takashi Yasumura. Yasumurafs most recent exhibitions include Scrolling Through Heisei Part 1 In the Here and Now, Tokyo Photographic Art Museum (2017) and Japanese Photography from Postwar to Now, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2016). Yasumurafs most recent book, 1/1 was published by Osiris in 2017.

Takashi Yasumura photographs things to see the resulting photograph; to see how things will look photographically. Yasumurafs interests do not lie outside the photograph; in fact, the images generated by his photographs are, to some degree, incidental, as his subject is really photography itself. There is thus - whether intended or not - a critical element to Yasumurafs practice and this is most evident in the most recent of his photographs in which objects are juxtaposed with patterns without regard to external content. In this one can see a critique of contemporary photographic practice. The present exhibition notably includes Yasumurafs debut film -a work in progress.
