For over fifty years, photographer Eikoh Hosoe has built up a body of work that shows a unique mastery of photographic techniques. Early in his career, he abandoned the predominant post-war documentary style in favour of an approach underpinned by a sense of experimentation and freedom. Making use of mythology, metaphor and symbolism, he created images that go beyond the limits of traditional photography.
