poster for Koichiro Kurita “Beyond Spheres”

This event has ended.

The Beyond Spheres project by Koichiro Kurita is inspired by the literature of Henry David Thoreau and attempts to visually explore Thoreau’s philosophy regarding the relationship between nature and humanity. Kurita retraces the steps of Thoreau as he traveled throughout the landscapes of New England region during the mid-19th century. Kurita uses his 8x10 camera to make negatives on paper employing an early photographic process from this same time period invented by the British polymath, William Henry Fox Talbot. The resultant albumen prints allow us to reconnect to our world and find harmony and balance among all living things.

Kurita’s work has been exhibited internationally and collected by major museums including the Museum of Fine Arts/Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts/Houston, Harvard Art Museums/Fogg, the Princeton University Art Museum, Yale University Art Gallery, the George Eastman House, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Maison Europeenne de la Photographie, Tokyo Fuji Art Museum, among others.
