East Hampton: Kazuo Kitai, 
John Gossage


Harper’s Books presents a dual exhibition of two masters of photography: Kazuo Kitai and John Gossage. This exhibition is also launch the publishing arm of Harper's Books with two volumes designed to showcase the work of these important artists: Barricade and The Code. Kazuo Kitai began his photographic career in 1965 at the young age of 22. Japan was on the cusp of a sea change in its photographic culture, and Kitai stood at the vanguard of this transition. His first book, Resistance, which documented protests near the American naval base in Yokosuka, was arguably the precursor to Provoke: a movement that completely rewrote the rules of photography. This was certainly the belief of Takuma Nakahira and Daido Moriyama, two of the official founders of Provoke, who asked Kitai to join the movement, and pointed to Resistance as a blueprint for their ideas and goals.
