This event has ended.

On the occasion of the publication of "Asakusa Portaits" by ICP/Steidl, Mr. Kikai will discuss his photographic work with Noriko Fuku and Christopher Phillips. Hiroh Kikai has carried out an ongoing series of photographic portraits in the Asakusa district of Tokyo since the 1970s. With a radical economy of photographic means, he seems to isolate and lay bare his subject's essential character. His aim, he says, is to create portraits that set in motion a "two-way conversation between the viewer and the picture."
At The School at ICP, 1114 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street.
