Solo Exhibition: Hiromichi Matsudaira “Experimental”

Experimental

My photographic works explore a new possibility of photographs. Some are embodied with multiple-exposure, and the others are enhanced by chemical manipulations in the darkroom. Using urban architecture and street as a visual metaphor, I created this series of experimental photography.

Solo Exhibition: Goh Takaya “When The Mind Becomes Pure”

When The Mind Become Pure

This is a series of conceptual, B&W portrait photography. Shooting was with an old manual film camera, processing film was with chemicals of my choice, and printing was on papers with gelatin silver emulsion. From shooting to printing, all processes were done without computer, but by my hands. The concept is to see the purity of the mind within us. I looked for people at work with passions and senses of responsibility, radiating their purer state of mind which can be said Zen-kind. Hoping to inspire viewers for the merit of mindfulness, and for the subtle joy of quietness
