'Keep an Eye Shut summarizes thirty years of the activities of Japanese photographer, artist, musician, and model Hanayo Nakajima. In 1989, at the age of 19, she became a Hang-yoku (younger geisha), and began to take pictures using her father's old camera. Her vivid and fresh images became a forerunner of 'girly photography' in Japan. Later she was featured on the cover of The Face magazine and modeled for Gaultier. She moved to Berlin in 1999 where she worked with the film director Christoph Schlingensief.'
