I am pleased to announce my 3rd photography exhibition titled Silent Japan. The exhibition will be held from 19 to 31 October 2010 at the Print Gallery, The Arts House. Opening hours are from 10am to 10pm and admission is FREE.
Silent Japan focuses on the Japanese landscape and is quite different from my previous exhibitions. Whilst my previous exhibitions focused on people and their interaction with their environments, this exhibition focuses on environments that are mainly devoid of people. A number of people who have seen a preview of the images have described them as “Wabi-sabi” which is a Japanese term that encapsulates the Japanese aesthetic or the “beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete”.
I will be exhibiting about 18 Sepia Toned prints which are selected from a larger ongoing body of work. The images are printed on Washi (Japanese handmade paper) which to me really adds something special to the final presentation of the images. You will have to see it to believe it! I will be writing a separate blog post on this particular paper that I am using but in the meantime, read through the following flyer for the exhibition and mark down the exhibition dates in your diary to drop by for a visit.
UPDATE: Silent Japan has been included in the Singapore International Photography Festival 2010 Satellite Programme as one of the Satellite Exhibitions! I hope that this will increase the publicity and awareness of the exhibition.
