Adventurer-turned-photographer Naoki Ishikawa has held several exhibitions of his stunning mountaineering photos in recent years, focusing particularly on his travels in the Himalayas, but this show at Mito's Art Tower marks his first large-scale solo display. Having scaled the highest peaks on each seven continents at the tender age of 23, Ishikawa draws on his own experiences as well as on anthropological and folkloristic approaches when shooting at some of the world's hardest-to-reach locations – from old-growth forests in New Zealand to remote Polynesian and Japanese islands. Including a number of previously unexhibited shots, 'Capturing the Map of Light on This Planet' makes for an exciting summary of Ishikawa's career so far. On February 12 (from 2pm, ¥1,000), the artist will be joined by sound designer Yasuhiro Morinaga for a multidisciplinary DJ show.
