Reflection - Things to Feel from the Distance: Natsuko Matsumura
April 14- April 19, 2018
The Tenri Cultural Institute is excited to announce “Reflection - Things to Feel from the Distance” by Natsuko Matsumura. The project stems from Matsumura’s own observations of the deep cultural traditions in both Jewish and Japanese culture. She incorporates her own reflections of growing up in Japan and the differences she find now living in New York through her photography.
