For Immediate Release

The Constant Gallery presents Keiichi Nitta: I Think Japanese People Should Be More Open
September 6, 2008 through September 30, 2008
Opening reception: September 6, 6:00 pm-9:00 pm (18 and over)

The Constant Gallery is pleased to present I Think Japanese People Should Be More Open, the first U.S. solo exhibition by Japanese photographer Keiichi Nitta. 

Nitta is widely known as the right-hand man to renowned photographer Terry Richardson. Based in New York City in the six years he spent with Richardson, Nitta absorbed all that his international exploration engulfed him with: transcultural notions of beauty, fetishism of fashion and sexuality, and ultimately his inherent ability to grip moments in time to capture images that are unmistakably “Keiichi.” His images do not reside within the usual preconceived contexts of photographic notions—rather, they are caught in forms of space and time, where (and when) eroticism does not need to equate to sex, beauty can be both relative and irrelevant, and his own reflections captivate instant relations with the viewer.

Now having returned to Tokyo, Nitta’s artistic influence burgeons not only in Japan, but internationally as well. He has worked for publications such as Vogue, Elle, Nylon and Vice, as well as designers such as Anna Sui, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Hysteric Glamour and Undercover. Nitta brings his work for the first time to the U.S. His exhibition includes exclusive new prints (editions of one) as well as his own wall installation. Nitta will be present for the opening reception.
