Kikuji Kawada - Vortex
'Vortex' consists of images selected from the vast amount of works uploaded by Kikuji Kawada to his Instagram account in the past years – simultaneously a condensation of the artist’s refined, sharp vision of the contemporary world as well as a culmination of the unparalleled sensibilities and awareness towards urban chaos that have defined Kawada’s remarkable career. The book blends photographs recently shot in Tokyo with other images produced and exhibited decades ago. Three essays by photography historian Yoshiaki Kai, curator Pauline Vermare, and artist Akiyoshi Taniguchi add further insight and context regarding Kawada and his extensive body of work.
