The Resobox Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of Ninteenth-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 Kusakabe Kimbei, Ogawa Kazumasa and Baron von Stillfried.

There will also be Japanese traditional green tea available during the reception, through the courtesy of Tea Whisk.
