Kenji Hirasawa: Celebrity

Barack Obama
Lewis Hamilton

Yesterday we attended the private view of SHOWstudio.com Contributor and explorative photographer Kenji Hirasawa's new show, simply titled 'Celebrity'. Based on a series of thermographic images capturing Madame Tussaud's' icons of wax and their admirers, the exhibition is a colourful examination of idolatry and the relationship that the public has with its public figures. A vibrant cousin of Designer Purikura, Hirawsawa's pop-art photo-booth project for SHOWstudio.com back in 2007, Celebrity is on show at KK Outlet, 42 Hoxton Square from Friday, July 8.
