Tokyo story by Emily Allchurch

Francis Hodgson, Emily Allchurch, Maria Balshaw

Research output: Book/ReportBook - authored


Catalogue essay for an exhibition of work by the British photographic artist Emily Allchurch at the Manchester Art Gallery. Sophisticated digital techniques allow the artist to revisit the famous woodblock prints of the Japanese Utagawa Hiroshige in such a way as to remind viewers that woodblock was itself a contemporary medium in Edo-period Japan, and that what we mistake for traditional views of the city were in fact highly charged and ultra-modern.
