On September 24th, Tim Barber unveiled a new body of work at Tokyo-based Yuka Tsuruno. Welcome to Earth sees the established New York-based photographer return to the Japanese gallery, where he showed in February 2010. In a departure from the bold color shots shown at his 2001 exhibition earlier this year in New York, the new series opts instead for a subdued black and white format.

Openings: David LaChapelle – “Negative Currency” & “Recollections in America” @ PRISM
