DeCosse’s philosophy is simple, “a photograph should be interesting to look at. I like to get in close,” he says, ‘so you see things you’ve never seen before.”

Cy brings his background of artist and art director to the art of photography. His love of photography began in Florence, Italy as a Fulbright student. His learning continued as he collaborated with many of America’s best photographers in his career as an agency Art Director. Cy believes in close, intimate images that show ordinary things in a surprising new light. He paints backgrounds that “float” the subject in a world of its own. Alternative processes give his images a look that is different and appropriate to the moment.

DeCosse’s work is in numerous public collections including the England Royal Trust and the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts. His work has been exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad.

Japan Photographer “SUGIURA Masakazu” was born in Kyoto, loves in taking black and white prints.  These photographs were mainly taken when the people were sparse, between sunrise and early morning as well as on rainy days.

The cherry blossoms (sakura) usually bloom in the last week of March and the first two weeks of April in Kyoto.

The cherry blossoms is in full bloom in about seven days after flowering and then the peak bloom period is five or six days. It takes about two weeks from flowering to falling. They burst into bloom then fall fleetingly and gracefully. It is important parts of the reason why Japanese people love cherry blossoms.

As Sugiura’s comments, these from flowering to falling become a metaphor for both Life and Death in the Japanese mind, and these concepts are not mutually antagonistic.

Join us and welcome to bring your friends to the opening reception as well as book signing at Saturday afternoon, on 11th of April.

Have you ever wondered how certain places looked like decades ago?

South Korean artist Sungseok Ahn’s series entitled “HISTORICAL PRESENT” questions the memory of past from the fast changing scenery of today. By overlapping a historical location with an old image of that exact place, he questions the way we treat our history and explores the dynamics between space and time at the same time.

Sungseok Ahn was born in Suwoon in 1985.  He was graduated at Photography and Visual Media Department of Sangmyung University in 2010.
