It’s the first major retrospective in the United States to show the works of the Japanese photographer, who has been working in black and white for almost 50 years. From bondage to nude women in ropes, he plays with the idea of power and intimacy in photography. Over 150 prints and 500 Polaroids are on view. “I want to make photographs that maintain their incompleteness,” says the artist. “I don’t want them to lose their reality, presence, speed, heat, or humidity. Therefore, I stop and shoot before they become refined or sophisticated.”
