Shomei Tomatsu, As Salaam Alaykum

Shomei Tomatsu, Kingdom of Mud For any Tokyoites out there, Gallery 21 will be showing a selection of works from a lesser-known series of Shomei Tomatsu's work next month. Although he has never been to Europe or the United States, Tomatsu has done his share of wandering around Asia and in the 1960s he made a trip to Afghanistan, which led to a series entitled Kingdom of Mud. I hope these will be vintage works, but in any case a Tomatsu exhibition is always worth a visit.
