Julie Vincent and Chris Tait
Tripping the Streets Fantastic: Tokyo
February 4 - March 31, 2017
Opening Reception February 11, 5:00 PM
For the fifth year of their ongoing international street photography project, Julie and Chris travelled to Tokyo Japan, he largest city in the world, and one of the most important cities in the history of street photography. Tokyo's complex, confusing, vibrant, weird, intensely distracting, busy, colourful, noisy and utterly intoxicating character made for a unique photography experience. Few places in the world can offer the challenges and delights of Tokyo, Japan. Unique experiences abound amid the complex, sometimes contradictory culture; its undercurrent of procedure and expectation is codified and remains, for outsiders, at the very edge of view and nearly impossible to comprehend. With its multitude of distractions, from immaculately maintained parkways to cosplay-clad youths, lies an constant undercurrent of order and a structure of manners. Examining themes of space, place, privacy and social separation through a candid lens, Vincent and Tait continue their conversation about traditional and modern approaches to street photography.
Closing reception Friday, March 31st, 5 - 7 p.m. Signed, framed gallery prints are available for sale. Delivery at or following closing reception. Signed, unframed prints may be ordered from the artists.
