RB Contemporary is proud to present, from November 8th – December 6th 2013 at Foro Buonaparte 46 in Milan, ‘TIMELESS’, the first personal exhibition by Japanese photographer Takeshi Shikama in Italy.
Takeshi Shikama’s vocation as a photographer began with a kind of revelation in the middle of a Japanese forest, and he dedicates all of his work to Nature.
The Japanese coniferous woods, the marine areas of Okkaido, stretching towards the exploration of America and Europe, with series dedicated to places from the marvellous Yoshemite National Park, to Central Park in New York, the ‘Jardin du Luxemburga’ in Paris, to the remote Isles of Skye in Scotland.
All the photographs are printed using the 18th Century platinum technique, a monochromatic photographic process which allows a return to the widest range of colour tones. Platinum is directly spread onto the paper.
