Saturday, March 7, 2 PM

Kyoichi Tsuzuki is an editor and photographer whose photo-reportage Tokyo Style, first published in 1997, proposed a full immersion into the private lives of the Japanese through photographs and texts written by Tsuzuki. His works, while eloquently commenting on living conditions of ordinary people, do not reflect the distant gaze of a sociologist analyzing the world. Rather, Tsuzuki’s seemingly banal photographs of everyday environments uncover the hidden value and beauty of textiles born out of necessity for survival in Tohoku.

In this talk, Tsuzuki will introduce his fascination with boro textiles, only recently categorized as an art form but which have had an enduring impact.

Tickets: $15/$12 members, seniors & students; free admission to exhibition included with ticket.
