Featured Image for Photo Express Tokyo by Keizo Kitajima

Photo Express Tokyo by Keizo Kitajima

Between January and December 1979, Japanese photographer Keizo Kitajima exhibited his photographs of Tokyo life in a way that was close to performance art. Each month, he would cover the walls with huge black and white prints made up of smaller pieces of photographic paper (developing in real time on the walls). He would often turn the gallery into a darkroom by applying the developer and fixer directly with a sponge. The resulting images are harsh black and white documents of the era, displaying accidents beyond his control. A sixteen page ¥200 booklet was produced after each show, which have all been reissued in a facsimile edition by Steidl.
