For decades, the legendary photographer Hiro has become highly regarded for his fashion, beauty, still life and portrait photography for Harpers Bazaar, Vogue, Rolling Stone and many other publications. Hiro’s genius lies in discovering beauty in the unexpected. In places where one could not imagine finding it. His work is characterised by surprises, abnormalities, unusual lighting, surrealism, and an astounding vision. To look at a photograph of Hiro’s is to come face to face with a picture rife with unusual lighting effects, surprising angles, juxtaposing elements and bold colours.
“The world of Hiro’s photographs, bordered by a shoreline, is unlike any place you have ever been… Hiro’s world encompasses the separate domains of fashion, portraiture, still-life and studies of the human body. His eye scrutinises men and machines with equal focus.” (Mark Holborn)
