• Reflections on Tokyo Subways by


    The Tokyo Subway is immense. Ignoring all the train lines, suburban links, etc. it is over 300km. Everything about it is dizzying, the scale, complexity, signage. You can travel for hours (without purpose…) and never get bored. It’s easy to focus on the overwhelming crush of humanity that makes use of this system, but the system itself is equally worthy of attention. Despite Tokyo’s image as a “future metropolis” much of the system is showing it’s age. Where the old and new meet it can be jarring: changing from an old to a new line can mean going from aging yellow tile, to sleek white panelling.

    Underwater logging in Panama

    “Underwater logging in Panama” is a work that took Arnaud De Grave almost all 2013 to complete. A first shooting session of about 15 days in March to get the first batch of pictures, then another session in October to set up the resulting exhibition (at the Alliance Française du Panama) and shoot some more pictures. Here is presented this exhibition.

    “What I didn’t see in Japan” is – as usual in my photowork – a photographic tentative for the scrutator to get inside the mood I felt when walking around a small town for some few days recently…

    Benoit Capponi is Arnaud Thurel’s guest. His long-term work about World War I is showed in a BOP-exclusive exhibition. It relates to the deep research work Capponi has done based on some letters from the “poilus” ( French World War I infantryman, literally: “hairy one”.) and topographic studies of war field. This certainly is an impressive piece of work.

The shaman starts the ceremony by some prayers, these have a soft and mysterious tone. The main room of the house is filled with his deep and low voice for twenty minutes. When silence is back, he unrolls a thin cotton rope and deploy it from his hands to the hands of the soon to be married couple and their two witnesses. Once the five of them are linked, an additional thin rope is installed between the two heads of the couple; the ceremony can begin.

New exhibition – new member || Jon Ellis’ Reflections on Tokyo Subways…
Apr 21, 2015

Whenever one thinks about Tokyo’s subway it usually involves these white[-]gloved agents shoving lots of inebriated Japanese salarymen and -women on a Friday night in Chibuya or Shinjuku; or the fight for the hegemony on the seat by the same -men and -women on which to sleep (and potentially throw up). All this is somehow true. I’ve been there. However, this new exhibition by our new BOP member Jon Ellis shows that if one knows how and where and when to look, one can be surprised.
