Synopsis:

Please join us for an evening with the renowned Magnum photographer Hiroji Kubota in celebration of his retrospective featuring some of his most iconic images.

More than one hundred photos will be on view, including color dye-transfer prints shot between 1978 and 2003 and black-and-white platinum prints from 1961 to 1989. His images range from meditative scenes of Burmese monks at Myanmar's sacred golden rock to candid portraits of North Korean youth.

This exhibition offers an extraordinary opportunity to view Kubota's collection of dye-transfer color images, produced with a rarely used technique that is impossible to duplicate today.
