From Above at Gallery EF in Tokyo

..August 2013.. ..Tokyo..

If you’re in Tokyo some of the From Above portraits will be exhibited at Gallery EF for the remainder of the summer. There will also be copies of my book on display to look through. I’m very grateful to Gallery EF to once again hold this “Summer Library” event for everyone to see the book who haven’t been able to purchase it.

We hope to have a larger exhibition at Gallery EF during the winter featuring new From Above portraits of fire bombing survivors from Dresden, Coventry, Poland and the former German Sudetenland. Hopefully it will happen and I’ll post more details when if it does happen.

I hope to continue exhibiting and photographing these portraits as much as possible. The project has been without financial sponsorship for five years and we’ve never charged admission to the exhibitions. The only proceeds we have are the limited sales from the books. The book sales help to keep the project going and allow us to exhibit the project for free.
