Yancey Richardson is pleased to present Tori, the gallery’s sixth exhibition by Japanese artist Masao Yamamoto. The works included in Tori, the Japanese word for “bird”, span the breadth of Yamamoto’s career, from 1994 to the present and include both hand-printed photographs and hanging scrolls. In conjunction with the exhibition, Radius Books has released Yamamoto’s 10th book, also titled Tori. The monograph combines carefully sequenced photographs with a selection of poems by Wallace Stevens, Seamus Heaney, Emily Dickinson, William Carlos Williams and others.
