Louis M Schmidt "Persons Unknown"


The Japanese Friendship Garden represents an exhibition of Louis M Schmidt: “Persons Unknown”. He is delighted to bring his ongoing series shooting in different cities around world. In this exhibition, the artist selected photographs of four recent trips to Tokyo, Japan. The exhibition introduces his unique vision of a way of looking at people in a city and curiosity of life in Japan. He captivates urban images through abstract view of pedestrians, architecture and city details.

The Exhibition leads a way of looking at people in a city, a way to relate the human body to its environment, a way to think about how architecture affects our emotional well-being and even a way to find and spiritualize the thresholds of our passage across this sacred horizontal plane we call Earth.
