Now. There’s an interesting one.

We were both keen to go but were left underwhelmed and didn’t take that much away from the exhibition.

I slightly preferred Moriyama.

I enjoyed the ideas behind PLATFORM 1977, ‘a study of anonymity, depicting people waiting on train stations, and Hunter 1972, ‘the various routes and highways out of Tokyo’ (Tate exhibition booklet). I like how he sees and captures fleeting moments.

He slightly preferred Klein. Having said that, Klein’s use of typography in an almost abstract way on large canvases was very impressive.
