The Photography of Yojiro Imasaka

April 13 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

In Person Porter Hall

Free with Garden admission. Registration Required.

We are excited to debut our first Artist Residency Program featuring photographer Yojiro Imasaka. Yojiro will be giving a talk about his creative process and the inspiration for his current work, Botanic Gardens.

“Ever since I started photographing, I have always been passionate about natural landscapes as my main subject matter. For my most recent series of work, I photographed using a 19th-century photographic method called “Wet Plate Collodion.” I plan to use the same technique during the TBG artist residency.

A thin glass negative reflects the vulnerability of nature, spreading awareness to society that we must conserve the earth that surrounds us and keep our future green. I aim to connect and inspire people with plants by promoting the significance of Botanic Gardens while using the natural elements of photography. One of my main objectives when presenting my work is to leave a lasting impression on the viewer in regard to the natural world.

Botanic Gardens
is a project I’ll be doing long term, I think it’s important to highlight the difference in gardens around the globe. The Tucson Botanical Gardens is very enticing given its desert landscape which makes it very unique and an important part of the Botanic Gardens project.”
