Ordeal by Roses (Barakei) #32 by Eikoh Hosoe, 1961 - click to enlarge

Amsterdam's Kahmann Gallery is currently showing a beautiful Eikoh Hosoe retrospective entitled Irrationality - presenting sumptuously dark photographes of butoh (Kamaitachi, 1965–1968), mythology, rites and definitely one or two gorgeous portraits of Yukio Mishima (Ba-ra-kei - Ordeal by Roses, 1963, see above)

The show opened in March and will remain on display until May 9.
