Rohan Hutchinson – Post Hiroshige


Post Hiroshige is Rohan Hutchinson's new body of work, continuing the Melbourne photographer's interest into Japanese Architecture and representation of space both within artwork and publication form. 

The body work draws inspiration from historic Japanese Ukiyo-Artist Hiroshige Utagawa. The interest lies in how Hiroshige broke away with traditional mathematical formulas of the time, in-return created a new way of seeing the natural and built landscape. The publication was created to replicate this angle of representation, through using highly detailed photographs of the Japanese modernist city Sapporo, the publication represents the architecture landscape in a different manner, one that explores a series of unbound collages depicting the variety of architectural nuances. Colour used within the publication and prints is the pigment data from Hiroshige Utagawa’s work 'Kinryuzan Temple Akasaka, c 1830'. Provided by the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia. 

The publication is extremely limited, with 150 copies being produced. Each publication includes a limited edition numbered and signed print. 

32 pages, 22 x 28 cm, softcover, self-published.
