IBASHO means 'a place where you can be yourself' in Japanese. IBASHO is a young gallery in Antwerp that opened her doors in March 2015, showing fine art Japanese photography ranging from works by well-known Japanese photographers to younger contemporary Japanese artists as well as works from Western photographers who were inspired by Japan. IBASHO hopes to show the versatility and beauty of Japanese photography in its many guises, from the raw and unpolished to the minimalist and still. IBASHO works with a wide range of contemporary Japanese photographers and also maintains a collection of rare vintage and earlier material from the masters of Japanese photography. Next to prints, IBASHO also deals in new and antiquarian Japanese photo books.
