I recently opened my Shimmer photographic exhibition ‘The Real Japan’ being held at the Aldinga Library as part of the Onkaparinga Shimmer photographic biennale. Last weekend and unfortunately it seemed that not many people were able to come, so I figured id post the images on display on here in the hope it entices some of you to pay a visit to my Shimmer exhibition. Remember all works on display are available for sale.
Shimmer ‘The Real Japan’ Exhibition info
Having lived in Japan for over 2 years, and being currently employed as a Japanese teacher, much of Steven’s work portrays a landscape of Japan not many people tend to associate with the country. Steven enjoys showing people the vivid colours and rolling landscapes of the countryside of Japan, along with traditional architecture and her vibrant people.
Too often people automatically assume the country consists solely of Japan’s cities, generally because that’s what most people’s experience of Japan is. This exhibition’s goal is to give a glimpse into the ‘real’ Japan. That is, the country that Steven has explored and learnt to love outside the concrete metropolis stereotype. Some of the images on display have won awards through the State AIPP and National AIPP photography awards and also have gained recognition through the inaugural Federal government initiative ‘Art’s in Asia’.
Remember the exhibition is open until the end of the festival on the 28th of September at the Aldinga Library.
