“Circulation: Date, Place, Events” was first exhibited in 1971 as part of the Seventh Paris Biennale. Each day, for seven consecutive days Takuma Nakahira photographed, developed and exhibited approximately one hundred photographs. The photographs are random glimpses from Nakahira’s daily activities in Paris, including strangers’ faces, produce stands, subway platforms, street posters and even his breakfast setting. Developing the photographs each night, Nakahira exhibited them the following day. Once the walls of the exhibition space were crowded with photographs, the artist spread them onto the floor. The resulting project presented a limited reality dictated by guidelines of “date,” “place” and “events.”
This is Japanese photographer Takuma Nakahira’s first exhibition outside of Japan since 1971 and first in America. The exhibition opens today and will be on view through Friday, July 12, 2013 at the Yossi Milo Gallery in New York City. An opening reception and book launch will be held this evening, Thursday, May 23, from 6:00 – 8:00PM.

Florida-based photographer Pablo Soria uses created his series, “Nocturnal” through long exposures of the night sky in his homeland, San Miguel de Tucumán in Argentina. He uses the darkened night sky as a means to “draw out” his compositions. Through the manipulation of light, he renders the familiar unfamiliar and presents the viewer with images referencing his memory of place.
“Nocturnal” is currently on view a the Schneider Gallery in Chicago through June 29. Also on view is “Fathom and Fray” by Caleb Charland.

The exhibition, “Best Before End,” by the British photographer Stephen Gill incorporates a number of photographic series that Gill made in and around the London Borough of Hackney over the past fourteen years. His processes include burying photographs, making exuberant flower collages, placing objects inside the camera so that their traces could be encapsulated within the film emulsion thus adding confusion of scale. Gill’s most recent series, entitled “Best Before End,” resulted from part processing negatives in energy drinks, bringing forth the most fantastic, abstract and vibrantly coloured works that somehow reflect the intensity of modern inner city life.
This exhibition opens at the Foam Gallery in Amsterdam May 17 and runs through July 14, 2013.
