PersonaHiroh Kikai

From among the crowds at Asakusa, a photographer picked out and approached those who somehow resonated, and photographed them against the backdrop of the Sensoji Temple grounds.
Portraits of everyday folk, taken by photographer Hiroh Kikai over the course of more than three decades.

Kikai always shot with Hasselblad and film, as he felt it deepens the imagination of the viewer. The works have been published in collections including PORTRAITS OF KINGS (Yatate), Ya-Chimata (Misuzu Shobo), PERSONA (Soshisha), and Seken no Hito (Chikuma Shobo), with titles incorporating the gratitude felt toward the people who became Kikai's models. Prints left behind by Hiroh Kikai have been selected again for this exhibit.

Please enjoy the Hiroh Kikai Theater.
