Tokyo Photo 2012

Highly optimistic, compared to the last year's sober post-tsunami offering, Tokyo Photo 2012 tries a little too hard to appear all business as usual. A few exceptions aside, predominantly safe margin selection of works speaks for itself—uncertainty is all but gone. Vintage prints, celebrities, nudes and (glamorous) semi-nudes dominate the show to a degree that at times it feels like flipping through an overweight copy of Italian Vogue. Sure, good sales are vital for the local market, but taking more risk may just as well help to reshape it altogether. Through October 1st.
