[untitled] Minigraph

About this object

In 1982 photographer Eikoh Hosoe published a group of photographic images titled "Minigraph". The images are test strips for analog darkroom prints Hosoe made while working for an exhibition. The work serves as appreciation for the multitude of fragmented images photographers generally discard of.

This photograph is an untitled work from Hosoe's series "Minigraph".
