In case you missed the first Futomomo Shashin Sekai-ten (The World of Thighs Photos) during Golden Week 2016, leg photography expert Yuria is expanding the world of thighs with a limited time exhibition of Futomomo Shashin Sekai-ten (The World of Thighs Photos) in the Shibuya Marui department store from September 3rd until September 19th!

Building on the success of Futomomo Shashin Sekai-ten which saw over 15,000 visitors, it seems that it was time to make the move to somewhere where even more people could enter the magical world of thighs. Shibuya Marui is located extremely close to Shibuya Station, one of the busiest transportation hubs in Tokyo and hosts a variety of exhibitions and events in addition to 8 floors of fashions for all. Besides, when it comes to thighs, what better place than Shibuya, the birthplace of gyaru culture and the gathering place for trendy youth in Japan?

At almost the same time, writer/artist/scholar Ryousuke Handa will be unveiling his Oshiri to Hikagami-ten (“Exhibition of backsides and popliteal [the back of the knee]”) from September 2nd until September 25th at TODAYS GALLERY STUDIO in Asakusabashi. It will include 250 selected works from the over 30,000 shots collected throughout the decades of Handa’s career as well as never before seen new works as well.

There will be a space set up within the gallery with screens that will only show the backs of knees, in order to immerse the viewer into a special world. The first 3,000 visitors will receive a postcard with the images from the exhibition on them.

For those of you who may become enchanted by the world view of Handa and Yuria, limited runs of goods and products including postcards, pins, and file folders will be available to purchase. A mechanical device designed by Hiroto Ikeuchi which adds a new angle to the appreciation of the thighs will also be for sale. It kind of looks like a Tachikoma! Both exhibitions will allow photography and posting of photos to social media too!
