From the Burns Collection

The Resobox Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of nineteenth century hand-colored photographs of Geisha and Maiko from the Burns Archive. These photographs are the original images used by Dr. Stanley Burns and his daughter Elizabeth to create their noted book Geisha: A Photographic History: 1872-1912. The images in this exhibition showcase the best of Japanese photographs that were made to show the perceived exotic nature of Japan to the West. Several of the great early photographers’ studios are represented, including Kusakabi Kimbey, Ogawa Kazumasa and Baron von Stillfried.

The opening was originally scheduled for November 2nd but rescheduled for tonight due to weather events (like hurricanes... P.S. We are all OK!).

The gallery is readily accessible from Manhattan. Take the 7 or N train or E or F to Queensboro Plaza. The gallery is on 27th Street, less than a half a block from the elevated line station.
