This is revered Japanese photographer Hitoshi Fugo’s first solo exhibition, featuring work produced from the early 1980s to the early 2000s, during his travels across India, Mexico and the United States. Fugo’s mesmerising work – free from a specific time or location – is an expression of the artist’s inner world.
