Patrick Tsai “Hot Water” exhibition, closing Oct 2

Photographer Patrick Tsai has an exhibition of his typically striking work at Cultivate Gallery in Tokyo – unfortunately it’s closing on October 2, but the finissage party will feature a performance by Moon Mama, the solo project of Afrirampo‘s Pikachu. (Wish I could hop a plane to Narita just for that!)

HUH. Magazine recently interviewed Patrick about the show and his shooting process:

Q: You very rarely shoot landscapes without people and people are almost always the central focal point of your images. What is it about people you want to store on film?
A: People are more interesting than trees or buildings. I always thought that. Basically, I think travel photography tends to be boring. That’s why in the My Little Dead Dick series we didn’t really take photos of the exotic people around us when we traveled to Tibet and Nepal, but focused more on ourselves in these places, I think that’s what made those photos a little different. For “Hot Water”, I decided to try boring.
