uga Exhibition at Gallery Kobo (巷房)
This photo exhibition (2011/07/04-09) by uga at Gallery Kobo (巷房) had "ears" as a general theme, with a more complicated background theme that the photographer explained to me on a picture-by-picture basis. I wish I had it on video, then I could just link to it and you could listen to the explanation yourself, but in the absence of that, I'll explain the picture featured on the promotional card. The student in the picture had just pulled an earphone out of her ear in order to hear something - presumably something like birds in the trees.... Each picture conveyed some listening moment like that. My favorite picture was of a piano player bent over a piano, seemingly intent on hearing the last note. この展示会は、色々な耳と聞く瞬間のイメージです。 それぞれの絵が独立の話がある。
