Before and After Night Porter focuses on the work of British photographer Chris Shaw and its compelling relationship to the Vivo and Provoke (Japanese photographic collectives of the 1960s) aesthetics, following the great interest in post-war Japanese photography in Europe and the United States in recent years. 

Working predominantly with black and white photography, Shaw produced a singular body of work, translating and adapting the language of Japanese photography into a distinctive British context. The world reflected in Shaw's work is one of blurring, close-ups, unexpected angles, high contrast, and overwhelming sensory experience.
