Kazumi Kurigami is a leading Japanese commercial photographer and cinematographer, perhaps best known for his work on numerous TV commercials for various major companies, such as Nissan, Sony and Suntory. In 2009, he also debuted as a film director with “Gelatin Silver, Love.”

This exhibition showcases Kurigami’s personal snapshots, some taken as far back as the 1970s, revealing an insight into the art of photographic aesthetics. One of the highlights is the series titled “Sunlight and Bones” — a dramatic show of contrasting black-and-white and color photos; Sept. 29-Dec. 2.
