Post Hiroshige is the new publication by Photographer/Designer Rohan Hutchinson and continues his interest in Japanese Architecture and representation of space, within artwork and publication form. The body of work draws inspiration from Historic Japanese Ukiyo-Artist Hiroshige Utagawa. The interest lies in how Hiroshige broke away with traditional mathematical formulas of the time, in return created a new way of seeing the natural and built landscape. The publication was created to replicate this angle of representation. Through the use of highly detailed photographs of the Japanese modernist city Sapporo, the publication represents the architecture landscape in a different manner, one that explores a series of unbound collages depicting the variety of Architectural nuances. The publication is limited to 150 copies, each publication includes a limited edition numbered and signed print. Color used within the publication and print is the pigment data from Hiroshige Utagawa’s work “Kinryuzan Temple Akasaka, c 1830”. Provided by the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia.
