School of Arts at the Oxford Brookes University is hosting an award- winning Japanese artist and photographer Hayahisa Tomiyasu this autumn as part of a multi-city residency organised by Modern Culture. Hayahisa’s image making focuses on the materiality of urban places, and the signs and rituals that are manifested there.

The residency will result in 10” London / LOOK, an exhibition of Hayahisa’s work in progress, which will run in Small Photography Studio, Richard Hamilton Building (RHG.44a) from October 25 to November 4, 2022 (9am – 5pm, Monday-Friday). It is the inaugural event of the Photography Research Group at the Centre for Research in the Arts (CoRA) and will include 10” (2020-) an ongoing series of photographs shot across multiple world cities and LOOK (2022-), shot in London as part of the residency. During his time in Oxford, Hayahisa will also take over Instagram account of the BA (Hons) Photography course @photooxbrookes
