Izu Photo Museum is honored to host the first solo exhibition at any art museum, anywhere in the world, of work by American photographer Terri Weifenbach (b. 1957).
Weifenbach embarked on her photography practice in the 1970s after studying painting at the University of Maryland, and has since published 15 well-received photo books.
“The May Sun” will center on The Politics of Flowers, one of Weifenbach’s leading projects, released in book form in 2005, and The May Sun series produced during Weifenbach’s long-term residency at Izu Photo Museum in 2015.
The exhibition will comprise around 110 works, a number The May Sun series and a video work shot at the Kakita River springs (Shimizu-cho, Shizuoka), being presented publicly for the first time.
