Takano Ryudai (b. 1963) received the Kimura Ihei Commemorative Award Exhibition for his photo book In My Room (2005), an attempt to visualize the ambiguities between binary opposites like man and woman, and homosexual and heterosexual. This exhibition, Takano's first retrospective, not includes photographs dealing with the theme of sexuality, but also a timeline of some 150 pictures taken since 2000 that were selected from the artist's entire body of work, including snapshots he makes on a daily basis, and the new series he began in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Together, these works will explore the essence of this photographer who consistently questions identity and conventional ways of looking at things.
