Yoshimitsu Nagasaka "Sacred Cherry Trees"
This event has ended.
This exhibition is part of a yearly April series that features photography of landscapes that include cherry blossoms, themed after various aspects of Japanese culture. This year's series showcases the work of Yoshimitsu Nagasaka, whose lifework has consisted in photographing his hometown of Mount Koya in Wakayama Prefecture since 1970, as well as sacred sites in Japan and throughout Asia. Although based in the Kansai area for a long time, Nagasaka has in recent years been exhibiting new works at various venues in Tokyo, publishing newly-reedited photo books, consolidating his reputation as a fine art photographer - developments that followed naturally from solo exhibitions at the Tokyo Photographic Culture Center and the Weston Gallery in California in 2002.
This exhibition features 15 full color photographs focusing on Mount Koya and Yoshino that were chosen from images of cherry blossoms produced over 30 years and reconstructed.
