About this Event

DATES: 15th -29th November 2019

PRIVATE VIEW: 14th November 2019 Thu 18:00-20:00

After the successful solo exhibition in the UK (March 2017), Nobuyuki Kobayashi reintroduces the Japanese sense of beauty and the connection to nature through the brand new series of photography masterpieces.

He interprets the philosophy of Shintoism, which conveys a belief that gods dwell in all of the existing things - rocks, trees, mountains. Explaining the Japanese sense of beauty and the close and almost intimate connection to nature, he attempts to answer if such relationship still exists in the modern age.

Nobuyuki Kobayashi

A Japanese photographer who creates unique platinum palladium photography prints of nature, on Hosokawa Paper, a traditional Japanese Washi paper which is listed on the UNESCO world cultural heritage. Platinum printing is an old technique characterized by having the platinum lay on the surface of the paper while the final image is matte due to a deposit of platinum absorbed slightly into the paper. This gives a delicate and sophisticated finish to the photography. Because of the combination of the Washi paper and the platinum palladium process, Kobayashi’s photography prints can last for 1000 years.
