In this presentation complementing the exhibition In the Wake: Japanese Photographers Respond to 3/11, Asia Society Texas Center welcomes artist Takashi Arai. To capture his images, Arai uses an early 19th-century photographic technique called daguerreotype. The technique, which involves exposing a polished silver plate to light, produces a single image that cannot be replicated.


Arai will discuss his photographic process and how his daguerreotypes can serve as compact monuments, compelling us to remember.Attendees will enjoy free admission the day of the program to the Louisa Stude Sarofim Gallery. The exhibition runs through January 1, 2016, and is open Tuesday-Friday, 11:00 am–6:00 pm, and Saturday-Sunday, 10:00 am–6:00 pm.
