12 young Japanese female photographers exhibit at IBASHO Gallery in Antwerp

Monday, May 29, 2017 — IBASHO - meaning 'a place where you can be yourself' in Japanese - is an Antwerp-based gallery that opened its doors in March 2015, showing fine art Japanese photography ranging from works by well-known Japanese photographers to younger contemporary Japanese artists as well as works from Western photographers who were inspired by Japan. The gallery shows the versatility and beauty of Japanese photography in its many guises, from the raw and unpolished to the minimalist and still.

Since its opening, IBASHO has been exposed to so much photographic talent coming from Japan, that the gallery owners have decided to start curating annual group exhibitions showing new and unknown works from contemporary Japanese photographers.

With pleasure IBASHO announces the first exhibition in this series of annual shows 'Female Force from Japan' which focuses on the works of twelve highly talented Japanese female photographers.
