Opening Reception: Thursday, June 6, 6-8pm

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Illumination, a collective photography exhibition on view June 5th through June 25th, 2019.

The works of Hendrik Bellstedt, Moving Elephant by Mark, Michai Morin, Luiz Todeschi, and Kazuhiro Ueda can be described as digital, abstract sculptors, creating Illumination. An exhibition that plays with light, refraction, shape, material, and contrast, along with our imaginative tendencies to create stories from snapshots. The viewer will be ensconced in otherworldly ambiances and moods, invoked to wonder what lies just outside the rendered display. All while the light, in its perpetual ambulation, amends.

Japanese photographer Kazuhiro Ueda’s work features intimate moments discovered in the bustle of city life. To find his subjects, Ueda enjoys walking the streets of his home city, Tokyo and other cities abroad. He will sometimes walk as long as seven to eight hours at a time, waiting for inspiration to strike him and for a scene to provoke an emotional response. To give his images their characteristic soft and nostalgic quality, Ueda utilize the “bokeh“ effect, a photographic technique that produces out-of-focus blurring. He also uses a large 50 mm lens to create a shallow depth of field in his images that produces a dream-like effect.
