Robert Kirsch: Reconnect
Tokyo-based German-Filipino photographer Robert Kirsch holds his first solo exhibition in which he explores his recent personal journey to contentment. Reflecting on his nomadic upbringing, Kirsch explores how Tokyo has brought him a sense of belonging, giving him a sense of community and real connection, and an understanding of how to reconnect with himself in the present.
Shooting intuitively, Kirsch’s photography is full of close-up detail and whimsical expression. His images are often arranged in unexpected diptychs that further add to the story conveyed and create a surprising relationship between two seemingly unrelated moments in time. “I could never put into words what my feelings were, but finally I feel like I’ve figured it out,” says the photographer. “I’m feeling more grounded, and not chasing this image I have of myself in the future.”
June 21 opening reception: 6pm-9pm
