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.
