Geisha, Tokyo, 2009 by Jean-Michel (JM) Voge is a contemporary black-and-white photograph 23.5" x 16.5" printed by the artist on handmade Awagami Japanese paper. The archival pigment print is signed, titled, dated on verso (back of print). Edition: 1/5.

The photograph is from the “Tokyo” series JM made in 2009 while visiting Japan. Capturing a geisha with a guarded smile showing off her flower-patterned kimono while holding an ordinary shopping bag in her other hand, JM reveals a very endearing Japanese figure. For JM’s portrait the photographer chose a backdrop of sake barrels with Japanese hieroglyphs written on them, against which setting the geisha stands out in her traditional garb.
