Taka Ishii Gallery Photography / Film

Taka Ishii Gallery opened in 1994 with an exhibition program devoted to exploring the conceptual foundations and implications of contemporary (photo) graphic practice. The gallery has since exhibited and published the work of Japanese and foreign masters as well as supported the development of younger artists. In the winter of 2011, the gallery inaugurated Taka Ishii Gallery Photography / Film, a second exhibition space located in the Roppongi district of Tokyo. With this new exhibition space, the gallery serves as a forum for the presentation of a focused program considering the work of lesser-known pre and post war Japanese photographers as well as a site for exhibiting the works by historical and contemporary photographic masters from Japan and abroad. The space also functions as a screening room in which the oftentimes overlooked, yet significant film works created by photographers are presented.
