In the event hosted by Nagoya’s Todays Gallery Studio, Yuria will be showcasing “more than 500 photographs, and more than 1,000 legs,” with categories such as “sports” or “appetite” taking the highlight.
Yuria, whose works include a collaborative thigh photography-themed cafe, has held several exhibitions in the past and is set to include some of the images that have been part of previous events.
Avid fans would be glad to know, however, that several new photos will be shown to the public for the first time.
The event will also include a gift shop where limited edition merchandise and prints will be sold.
Yuria will also be in attendance at Todays Gallery Studio Nagoya in Aichi-ken, Nagoya-shi, Naka-ku, Shin Sakae 1-17-12 on the first and last days of the exhibit.
Here’s the thigh-themed cafe Yuria helped design last year:
