This event has ended.

Fergus McCaffrey presents Japanese photographer Ishiuchi Miyako, with a solo exhibition of over 70 photographs spanning the first and second floors of the 26th Street location. Marking the artist’s largest gallery exhibition to date, the presentation features photographs from five series made over four decades, including many early and never-before-seen works.

Ishiuchi’s strength is her self-taught affinity for exposing a universal vulnerability that embraces the beauty of the worn, eroded, and decayed. She began taking photographs in the early 1970s of her hometown of Yokosuka—a city dramatically transformed by the United States Navy occupation. After investigating the decaying landscape of a city scarred by war, Ishiuchi continued examining markers of trauma and material traces of time passed, photographing the intimate imprints, personal effects and belongings of people.
