At CALM & PUNK GALLERY in Tokyo, a photographer Akira Somekawa’s solo exhibition “Houescape” will be held from September 2nd to 11th. Just released his new photo books named “Houescape”, in this August.
Since his last – 1st exhibition “akirasomecamera” at the gallery in 2007, he has been discussed several times with the staff of CALM & PUNK GALLERY, in this decade. They had an everlasting discussion always, with a little bit of annoyance each other. While they couldn’t think it has even come to the conclusion, the dialogue ended as word breaks.
This time, based on the theme of his coined word “Houescape”, the viewer will feel a little that we are captives including the artist. And a text by Kenji Takazawa the photography critic for his book and the exhibition will be shown at the gallery.
