Zuko5 is a group consisting of four people – a freelance stylist, a barber, a portrait photographer and a soba chef ー who express their free ideas by capturing powerful images.
“Before you ever realize it, you stop. You forget. You acclimate. You leave passion and curiosity behind with age.”
Since 2012, the group has been intentionally trying to keep this passion and curiosity ー something that used to seem so natural before ー from slipping out of their hands. As a team, they come up with ideas to stimulate their abilities and provoke new works.
“Even now, we are doing our best to keep that same energy, similar to the times we sat dazed in the classroom.”
As we all grow older and some of us wiser, our creativity has the tendency to slowly evaporate. It is up to us to deliberately keep this from happening. We must work hard, and play even harder; the motto Zuko5 lives by. They know no limits in their photography, as they often break the fourth wall, and are not shy to use body paint and lightsabers.
Opening reception: August 24 | 18:00–21:00
