                  On October 9th, 2013 Aperture and Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery hosted a conversation on the career and influence of Eikoh Hosoe, widely acknowledged as a pioneer of expressionistic post–World War II Japanese photography. Hosoe, whose oeuvre spans over fifty years, has explored the human body’s physicality as a subject that reveals a shifting interior landscape of dreams and desires. Panelists Russet Lederman, Kunié Sugiura, and Charles Traub share their knowledge as researchers, critics, and fellow artists about Hosoe’s groundbreaking work from the 1960s onward. Traub and Sugiura concentrate on Hosoe’s influence on their generation, while Lederman introduces an overview of Hosoe as a postwar photographer with a focus on his role as a teacher and catalyst for an East-West dialogue. Excerpts from Hosoe’s 1960 film Heso to genbaku (Navel and A-Bomb) are be shown alongside photographs during the discussion. This panel was made possible with the support of Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery, and was presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Eikoh Hosoe: Curated Body 1959-1970, on view through October 19, 2013.
