The artist will be present
Exhibition Periode 31 May - 11 June 2017
We proudly present a rare, unseen and limited selection of vintage prints from
Morten Andersen´s Tokyo series.
“In 2000 and 2002, I went to Tokyo, not primarily for photographing, but for looking for Japanese photo books and watching Japanese photography. This was before the huge photo book trend took off and before everything was on the internet. When I asked for books by Moriyama in Europe, for example, nobody understood what I was talking about.”
The photographs formed the book; Morten Andersen - Days of Night,
and were also presented in the exhibition Fugatile Stories at the
Norwegian Museum of Contemporary Art in 2003.
In November 2016 Andersen was invited to show his Tokyo photographs at the In between Gallery in Paris, a gallery specializing in Japanese photography. They asked for unseen images and Andersen had to dig deep in his boxes where he found
a number of vintage prints which had never been shown before.
The exhibition in Shoot Market is curated from this selection of rare unseen vintage prints and we are truly proud to present them for sale in Oslo!
All prints are vintage silver gelatin on Baryta. Please note some prints are unique prints (only one).
At the Paris exhibition, Morten Andersen also made a new zine / photo book in a limited edition of 150. They are sold out except for 10 copies which he reserved for you
in our Shoot Market.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
