Hisashi Shimizu Photo Exhibition ‘All We Need is Love’

This touching and poignant photo exhibition at the Time Out Café & Diner Gallery Space in Ebisu features photographer Hisashi Shimizu – who also works his magic for various fashion magazines among other clients. His beautifully intimate images of same-sex couples and their children in candid, documentary-style family portraits reveal a world that for some is a mystery and others is their whole life. Not only are the relationships between the couples and the lives they’ve built together portrayed with incredible sensitivity and eye for emotion, but also the relationships between each parent and child, and those between the children themselves, creating a delicate pyramid of familial interplay. With gay marriage and family rights being a topic that just keeps on getting hotter, this exhibition is not only full of beautiful photographic art, but also a conduit of imagery that brings home the essence of these issues, and also of what the multi-faceted definitions of love and family can be.
