The Japanese photographer Eikoh Hosoe's multi-disciplinary approach to taking photos incorporates elements of theatre, dance, performance and traditional Japanese art, with striking results. Known for his intimate and Expressionist work that incorporates both personal qualities with an objective eye, Hosoe's signature style of high-contrast black-and-white images are often metaphoric and rife with mythological symbols.

His first Brazilian exhibition, entitled 'Corpos de Imagens' (Bodies of Images), includes many works that are the result of collaborations with famous Japanese figures, such as the author, actor and film director Yukio Mishima, the choreographer and founder of the Butoh dance movement Tatsumi Hijikata, and the inspirational Butoh performer Kazuo Ohno. 

The show also includes Hosoe's latest work, Un Homme Rodin from 2010, which is a collection of 'portraits' taken of the French sculptor August Rodin's works at the Rodin Museum in Paris.
