I have always been interested in “souvenirs”. You buy stuff you usually would’t buy when it becomes souvenirs. Why? They bring more than just a thing. We want them because we like to keep the memory and elation for the moment or the places that somehow make us feel warm.
I wanted to express the warms as my first exhibition and asked Shukosha (hand-carved stencil dyeing craftsman) for collaboration.
Mass product cannot replicate hand-carved lines. I hope you enjoy art of craft and my Japanese souvenirs.
“On the Road” Photo Exhibition by Ilán Terrell
Date: Dec 11th, 2015 – Jan 10th, 2016
Ilán Terrell puts a new spin on the western roadtrip, with his new photographic series “On the Road.” Ilán travels throughout the western United States every month, documenting his own life with classic cameras in a modern era, producing images with a sense of nostalgia and a high-tech twist.
A native Californian, musician, and photographer, Ilán takes the viewer on a journey up Route 66 in a minivan loaded with cameras, guitars, drums, and yes… Shamisen, to experience all that the American highway has to offer. He will conclude his journey and photo exhibition with images taken during his stay in Japan.
