Eikoh Hosoe

Tokyo, Japan 

Hosoe traveled from Japan for his first, of many, workshops with at the Center in 1992. His visionary presence had everyone he met –  from staff to artists to his workshop students – know they were in the presence of a true Master. After spending a week with us he decided that Woodstock was “the most spiritual place in the world.” He produced an entire series of photographs made in the Woodstock area, which are published in Eikoh Hosoe : Photographs 1950-2000.
