Hana Dorobou brings together a collection of photographs taken by Eikoh Hosoe in 1966, in collaboration with artist, painter, essayist and pioneer of woman's underwear in Japan Yoko Kamoi. Within, what unfolds is a narrative which captures the handmade dolls, made by Kamoi, in varying situations and settings. Each photograph is accompanied by a short text by poet Rui Hayasaka, which playfully situates both doll and image within a world of minature subjects, peforming against the backdrop of a man-made environment.
