CASE TOKYO is pleased to announce the exhibition Water Mirror by Japanese photographer Risaku Suzuki, to be held from January 20 to February 24, 2018. The exhibition features several original prints from Suzuki’s Water Mirror series (published as a photobook by the Fine-Art Photography Association in 2017) and illustrates how the reproduction of Suzuki’s vivid colour tones was achieved for the prints on display. This publication collects 46 images that take the surface of water as their chosen subject. This series follows Suzuki’s previous works, such as studies of Southern France’s Mont Sainte Victoire, theatelier of Paul Cézanne, Sakura (cherry blossoms) and Yuki (snowfall), and his lifelong documentation of his hometown Kumano, and consists of 46 images that take the surface of water as their chosen subject.

This exhibition is made possible with support from Taka Ishii Gallery and Fine-Art Photography Association.
