My first guess was Kiyoji Otsuji!
- Nobuyoshi Araki (b. 1940)
- Ogawa Kazumasa (b. 1860)
I saw “Ghost in the Shell” for the first time last night. It’s as if it was written specifically for the future analysis of media studies professors. Of course I enjoyed it.

It’s hard to believe, but starting Friday, my grandma will have a photo show in Tokyo! “Light & Shadow: The Photographs of Kathryn Abbe” will be up at Gallery Tosei from 11/1 to 11/27. If you are around, I hope that you can come by. I will try to be at the gallery as much as possible.
本当に信じがたい話なんでけど、今週の金曜日から僕のお祖母さんは東京で写真展を開きます！「Light & Shadow: The Photographs of Kathryn Abbe」は１１月１日（金）から１１月２７日（水）ギャラリー冬青で開催されます。時間あれば是非見て下さい。できるだけギャラリーにいます。

About Nasreen Mohamedi, who should be better known:
Nasreen Mohamedi was born in Karachi, India (now Pakistan) and raised in Bombay. After studying at St. Martin’s School of Art in London from 1954 to 1957, she returned to India and joined the Bhulabhai Institute for the Arts. While there, Mohamedi’s interest in abstraction revealed significant differences from the figurative approach of many of her peers. Through her mentorship with the renowned abstract painter V.S. Gaitonde, Mohamedi developed her personal sense of the sublime in abstraction.
In 1961, the artist had her first solo exhibition at Gallery 59 in Bombay. She traveled throughout the Middle East in the mid 1960s and was influenced by Islamic architecture. From 1972 to 1988, Mohamedi was on the Faculty of Fine Arts at the M.S. University in Baroda, India, where she was revered as a teacher. In 1990, Mohamedi died of Parkinson’s disease in Kihim, India.
