Paul Graham - Empty Heaven - Scalo 1995

‘Empty Heaven’ – Photographs from Japan 1989–1995 is Paul Graham’s first museum exhibition in Germany. The work consists of 55 colour photographs taken over the last seven years on numerous visits to the “Land of the Rising Sun”. The are the result of Paul Graham’s intensive encounter with Japan, its socio-cultural structures and its history. In these visceral photographs he scrutinizes the scar tissue of contemporary Japanese society. He identifies a collective amnesia still obscuring, decades after the end of WW II, the memory of unconditional surrender and total defeat. At the same time he scrutinizes the benevolent and polite surfaces of Japanese culture that mask the power structures underlying it.
