Daydreaming – A Japanese motion
A photography exhibition by Morgan De Laporte
15th – 31st August 2017
Private view: Tuesday 15th August, 18:00 – 20:00
Morgan de Laporte is a French photographer focused on street and travel photography. Mixing analogue and digital tools, he shows here his journey around Honshu Island.
This series of photographs explore the Japanese rythmes of life. Travelling through the gigantic mazes of Tokyo, Osaka and Yokohama, always in the spectator’s position. He captures the workers and dreamers of Japan’s sprawling megalopolis; frozen moments of cities in constant movement and its inhabitants who snooze and feed these never-sleeping giants.
A journey that also takes him to the more peaceful life in the snowy mountains of Nikko and Nagano, where nature – the guardian of Japanese values and culture – is here to contrast with the urban frenzy.
Saturday and Sunday by appointment only
