We are thrilled to announce that Stephen Gill's exhibition will be held at Kiyomizu-dera Temple's Jojuin from April 14th to May 6th. This exhibition features his recent collotype series of art works, known as Night Procession which was the Grand Prize Winner of the Hariban Award (International Collotype Photography Competition) 2017. Collotype is a unique photomechanical printing process invented in France about 150 years ago.

Gill's ambitious series of works, which he has crafted for over three and a half years deep in the forests of Sweden, are given a final touch by Japanese artisans using Japanese traditional washi paper. Feast on these remarkably exquisite art works along with Jojuin's renowned Moon Garden, and experience one-of-a-kind soul-stirring moments.


Dates: April 14 (Sat) - May 6 (Sun).
Hours: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm *last entry at 3:30 pm

[Stephen Gill]
Born in Bristol, U.K., Stephen Gill became interested in photography in his early childhood, thanks to his father and interest in insects and initial obsession with collecting bits of pond life to inspect under his microscope. Stephen's photographs are held in various private and public collections. Major works include Hackney Flowers, Anonymous Origami, and Invisible. His award-winning photobooks are self-published under the imprint "Nobody books".
