During the walk-in workshop you will follow the footsteps of Masahisa Fukase by making an experimental, biographical photo by using various materials. Experiment with others with color, frame and composition to look for your personal style.
The walk-in workshops at Foam Studios are appropriate for all ages and are made possible by corporate partner Olympus. Foam provides Olympus-OMD cameras for this workshop.
About the exhibition
With Masahisa Fukase – Private Scenes, Foam presents a large retrospective on Fukase’s work. The Japanese artist worked almost exclusively in series, some of which came about over the course of several decades. His subjects are personal and highly intimate: over the years, his wife Yoko, his dying father and his beloved cat Sasuke regularly featured in sometimes comical, at other times sombre visual narratives. Towards the end of this working life, the photographer increasingly turned the camera on himself. The works combine to form a remarkable visual biography of one of the most radical and experimental photographers of the post-war generation in Japan.
