Manga Dreams

When the photographic team of Jonathan Anderson and Edwin Low - known as Anderson & Low - visited Japan in 2004, they were struck by how the Manga art style was dominating youth culture, with many young people trying to emulate their Manga heroes and heroines in dress and look. They decided to capture these youthful aspirations in photos combined with digital technology. The result is Manga Dreams. This eye-catching exhibition opens at Hamiltons Gallery in Mayfair, London, on 27 January and continues until 5 March. The gallery, like so many, has a really irritating clever-dick website: CLICK. The title link takes you to a BBC slide show of images from the exhibition. The Telegraph has also posted a slide show: CLICK. The book is to be published in February.
