Today only: 7 photographers — and more — at Le Deco

7 at Gallery Le Deco

Yesterday from my mobile I posted some info about the “7” photography exhibit at Gallery Le Deco. Today I’m just posting to remind you to get out there if you’re interested, because it ends today at 5pm.

For maps and directions, including a QR code you can use to grab details to carry/view on your mobile phone, see the TAB page for Gallery Le Deco. You can also find some info at the Le Deco site.

The seven photographers who have works on display as part of the show are listed below. Follow the links to see some online samples of their work, including images of some of the photos on display at the exhibit.

You can also find profiles of all the them online, with links to their own individual sites.

Note that there are also two other visual arts events ending today at Le Deco. The first event, a group photo exhibit titled “apartment”, is on the 2nd floor and has works from eleven students in Haruo Kobayashi’s current class at The Tokyo College of Photography. Some of the photos are excellent. I didn’t have enough time to see them all yesterday, so I’m headed back today to look at more. The second event, a group exhibit titled OUR LIFE, has computer-generated photo and video work from 17 students in the Department of Information Design at Tama Art University. What little bit of the video work that I managed to see yesterday was very interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing more if it today.

Lots of stuff. Get out there today before 5pm to see it all.

Go to Le Deco tonight/tomorrow

Go to Le Deco tonight/tomorrow
Tonight (Jan. 28) until 7pm and tomorrow until 5pm only there’s an excellent set of exhibits showing at Le Deco, on four different floors. The top floor has photos, including works from Tommy Oshima, Funiku Ookami, and Mario Takahashi. When I stopped by, they all three were there and I had a chance to talk with them all. Mario showed me a couple of his handmade trick lenses and even let me play with them.

On another floor you’ll find a installation with some dark, moody 3D work by Tacji Kikuchi (ends today).Other floors have more photos (which I had to rush through because I was running very late) and some CG animation video work.

Highly recommended. Go. I plan on going back again tomorrow, with my daughter.

SAKUMA Gen photo exhibit at Place M in Shinjuku

SAKUMA Gen (dog photo) Last night, on my way to the Tokyo International Players performance of Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard” (by the way — more shows at 2:00 and 7:30 today, January 28, and one show tomorrow at 2:00), I stopped off at Photo Gallery PLACE M in Shinjuku 1-Chome to see an exhibit of photographs by SAKUMA Gen, titled 「そこへゆけ」or “Go there”,

PLACE M is a small gallery/workshop, run by a group of photographers, that’s just a two-minute walk from the Marunouchi Shinjuku Gyoenmae station. It’s well worth heading over there to see the exhibit. But go now, because the exhibit ends tomorrow (January 29). For directions, including a QR code you can use to grab a map and directions for carrying/viewing on your mobile phone, see the TAB page for Place M.

Tokyo Moon

This follows Imazo‘s post Sky of Tokyo. To me, Tokyo looks best at night, but I would also recommend early morning, especially the day after a storm. The sky clears and the views stretch out to Mount Fuji. I was up early yesterday morning and caught the moon still hanging over Tokyo tower

Then as the sun rose, the buildings started to glow pink
