Parklane Gallery will feature Rob Tilley’s photography,
City Lights – Ancient Traditions, during the month of February, 2011.
While I was living in Tokyo I became fascinated by the juxtaposition of modern everyday Tokyo with the traditional Japanese culture often seen at festivals, temples and shrines. I chose images for this exhibit which represent this juxtaposition. Tokyo nightlife with its myriad neon signs and continuous motion is modern in every sense of the word. But one can also experience the ancient traditions of Japan by visiting a Shinto shrine or a traditional garden. I tried to include images in this exhibit which capture the spirit of Japanese culture, both modern and traditional.
If you are in Kirkland, WA in February, please stop by.
