Ben Brown Fine Arts presents “Floating World“, the first major gallery show in London devoted to international photographer and 2015 Prix Pictet nominee Ori Gersht.
Working from his London studio, Gersht has gained international recognition over the past fifteen years for his eye-catching still-lifes and landscapes, in which he revisits history, journeys and places often defined by trauma. Tensions between past and present, beauty and violence, creation and destruction continue to inhabit Gersht’s distinct visual language, expressed through a set of coded references and metaphors.
The exhibition is debut the artist’s latest body of work, a series of photographs capturing the ancient gardens in Buddhist Zen temples in and around Kyoto in Japan.
