Hi! This is Alejandro.
I’m sharing pictures from Zack Zook’s exhibition On Fear / Ring of Fire.
Zack recreated the Ring of Fire he contributed to Sakuraitoshimatsuri, and showed many photographs taken during his stay.
We are happy to announce On Fear / Ring of Fire, an exhibition by Zack Zook, in which he will show work he did during his residence at Studio Kura.
Zook is an American photographer based in Brooklyn, New York City. He was the founder and executive editor of Cousin Corinne’s Reminder, an annual art publication featuring international photography, literature, and painting, and he was the literary events and development director at BookCourt from 2005-2014.
Here are some words from the artist himself.
My work as a photographer is rooted in affection for urbanized Street Photography, which I began producing in New York City as a child. My work in portraiture, nature, and in the studio, is influenced by this perspective and therefor strives to capture scenes that expose viewers to contradictions in human expectations. I shoot using Nikon 35mm and Canon DSLR cameras. I use Nikkor and Zeiss lenses.

The other day our residence artists got invited to tea ceremony at a our neighbors’ house.
After having some sweets while learning about the ceremony, they got to actually enjoy the tea.
Even when getting everything explained in a very simplified way, they looked a little confused at the many meaningful details. Aside from the cultural details, everybody loved the tea!
Before they left, Mr. Inoue wished for everyone’s health and blew a conch horn. Thank you, Mr. Inoue!
Here are some pictures and memories from SakuraItoshiMatsuri, a festival held near a beautiful Shinto shrine at the peninsula part of Itoshima.
Studio Kura had a booth. So crafty!
