Portfolio Review with James Nakagawa and Yuki Towada

This morning I was fortunate enough to have a portfolio review with visiting artists James Nakagawa and Yuki Towada. Both were in the Dallas / Fortworth, Texas area to lecture regarding the show curated by Mariko Takeuchi and James Nakagawa – Contemplation: Emerging Female Photographers From Japan. The show is exhibited in the Texas Woman’s University’s East and West Galleries in the Visual Arts Building. Contemplation: Emerging Female Photographers From Japan features work by Tomoe Murakami, Yuki Tawada, Yuhki Toyama and Ai Takahashi. The exhibition has generously been loaned to TWU by Pictura Gallery in Bloomington, Indiana.

I showed my series Sanctum for review. I received generous feedback from the guest artists, which shed new light on my work. As James Nakagawa rearranged my series, these few images became their own entity.
