"Tokyo Story"

Saturday, March 28 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM
Parisian Room

Jun Itoi's recent photographic project captures the imitated
buildings from one of the city development plans in Tokyo. A
small Japanese residential area was turned into a little Italian
town. Being Japanese, and spending one-third of his life in the
United States, Itoi overlaps himself on the relationship between
those European design buildings and his motherland. He also
talks about the role of light in his imagemaking as a divider of
this world and the world of the dead in Buddhism by introducing
his latest photographic project, executed in Finland.
