Tim Wong (photographer) & Akiko Hirano (Calligrapher)
January 31 - February 28, 2019
Quiet unpretentious beauty, the essence of Japanese aesthetic, is also an endearing quality of the American Southwest. In their long-term project, photographer Tim Wong and Calligrapher Akiko Hirano explore unexpected aesthetic resonance between diverse cultures and locales through a calligrapher’s mind’s eye, which takes the form of a shrouded figure in stark black-and-white images complemented with Japanese calligraphy.
