I am excited to share that my good friend and fellow street photographer Satoki Nagata is featuring some of his street photography in Chicago, December 15th (Saturday). He will show a collection of his street photography and documentary work. More information about the exhibition below:
Time & Location
Date: Saturday, December 15th
Time: 7pm – 10pm
Place: 1118 N. Ashland Ave – Google Map
Here is Satoki’s statement on his photography:
“The camera captures the moment of the fraction of a second and I found that successful images show the multi-dimensional relationships of the world through symbolic and abstract forms. I found these forms in my photography. By searching for the elements that represent reality I see around me, I can capture them through photographic media. I see the light and shadow produced by flash is the pure form of reality of people living in the city. Inside the bright light line, the significance of existence of the person appears. The image is abstract and surrealistic but also full of life and personality.”
There will be music by Gjeme Markaj, complimentary drinks, appetizers, and good times. I won’t be able to make it, but if you are in Chicago definitely check it out!
