Eikoh Hosoe was deeply impressed by Gaudi’s architectural ensemble in Barcelona in 1964. 13 years later he started photographing them and showed them in “Homage to Gaudi” exhibition.

In part 1, we will exhibit his pictures which were taken and printed in 1977 - 1978. And in part 2 we will display his photographs which were made in 1984.

These vintage prints will appear for the first time in over 20 years and we hope the visitor of our exhibition will be impressed by them.
