Australian photographer Tess Kelly is staying with us this month, and this weekend she is holding both a workshop and an exhibition to show the pictures she worked on this month.
You can visit her solo exhibition “Itoshima, for now” from the 23th to the 28th of February, at Studio Kura Gallery. In her words:
Itoshima, for now
Itoshima, for now, is a visual response to my short time here in Itoshima, Japan.
I am an Australian photographic artist interested in looking at how, through personal perception, varied environments and objects are capable of exuding and reflecting an internal emotion.
For now, for myself, for you. Landscapes and still life photographs reflect moments of my days and nights, my thoughts, reactions, uncertainties, awe and stillness in this unfamiliar world. These images are of a poetic nature, a reflection of Itoshima that have been entwined and influenced by a personal perception.
The same day her exhibition will open, Tess will hold a workshop to teach the local community some photography techniques.
We will have an opening party after the workshop so I think this will be a very enjoyable Saturday at Studio Kura!
