Visit Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery at  24 East 64th during the Madison Avenue Spring Gallery Walk this Saturday, May 15. The gallery will be pleased to introduce you to a new photography series, "Correspondence" by Yojiro Imasaka, the Brooklyn-based artist originally from Hiroshima, Japan. 

When New York City was ordered to shut down last year, Imasaka reviewed negatives from his previous shooting trip to Japan.  Imasaka made more than 50 small toned gelatin silver prints in his darkroom, a process he could manage without a laboratory or assistant.  “Correspondence” is a contemplation based on bird’s-eye-views of a deep mountain forest in Northern Japan, all shot on the same spot. These prints, first shown last June, are available for purchase, and the artist will donate a portion of the proceeds to Doctor Without Borders for their Covid-19 medical efforts.
