Hello there.
Thanks for visiting my web!

My first book, “Dreamscapes”, is on the way! I’m very excited about it. It will be ready on April 3rd at my opening reception. Don’t miss it!

Please drop me a message if you can see me in Wroclaw. Thanks!!

I visited Wroclaw in Poland last week again for the “catalogue business”.
This time, the weather there was so mild, and the sunshine was really bright! The city looked perfect with the warm spring weather. People in Poland already seemed to enjoy eating real huge ice creams everywhere, but I had no guts to eat any ice cream yet… I’m going back there for my upcoming shows and also for the “huge ice creams” soon!

* Excuse me, the Time of the Opening Reception for my upcoming show has been changed after I announced the last NEWS. Here are the updated details;

The weather is changeable nowadays…but, when it is really like spring, I enjoy seeing some Sakura (cherry blossoms) and listening to birds’ singing. Sakura here in Europe seems to start blooming earlier than Sakura does in Japan, even though the European weather is colder in the season… Huuum, it must be different kinds of Sakura trees between here and there. Well, the flower’s colour is lighter here than Japan’s slightly pink ones. Anyway, the both ones look lovely to my eyes.
Hope that you already enjoy good weather in your own cities!

Take care, and I look forward to seeing YOU all in Poland soon!

Best wishes,
Reiko

Hello there.
Thanks for visiting my web!

Are you ready for the spring in your city? Here in Brussels is still a bit cold, but I expect much warmer weather is coming very soon! Last month, I visited Wroclaw in Poland

to discuss my upcoming show and a new catalogue publication.
Wroclaw is a very beautiful city with so many fantastic designs and colours of classic buildings. I was so surprised that people there were so energetic to enjoy outside activities in the city even at night and the weather was freezing (–12 degrees Celsius !). However, according to the local people, this winter was a warm one in Poland and there were some flowers which have been blooming on the ground during the season! Here is a link to a web that has some pretty good photos of Wroclaw (only in German). Check out this!;http://www.tabibito.de/vostok/wroclaw.shtml


Here is the info for my upcoming solo show that will be the second show of the “Traveling Shows in Poland”;

The details will be announced soon!). For this exhibit in Wroclaw, the “Dreamscapes” images will be much larger than before, with no frame or matte. On this special occasion, the prints were made with the great help of Mr. Motoyuki Kubo from “The Prints” in Tokyo, one of the best printers in Japan. I really appreciate the result of the prints. I would like to thank to Mr.Motoyuki Kubo and also to Mrs.Yumiko Kubo. Here is the web of “The Prints”; http://www.theprints.jp/

Another NEWS is…

* * My first monograph catalogue “Dreamscapes”, for the traveling shows in Poland will be published on April 3rd! In the main parts of the publication, 13 triptychs and 1 single image, which are all of the pictures from the “Dreamscapes” series are included. And also, 16 images from my previous series “Dreams of the Amnesiac” are included as supporting parts of the catalogue. The texts are in Polish and English. Please look forward to seeing the catalogue soon!!

Another extra NEWS is…

* * A review about my “Dreamscapes” show (by Elzbieta Lubowics ) and an image has been published in the present winter issue of “IMAGO”, which is a unique, contemporary photography magazine in the Central and Eastern Europe. Please check out it if you have a chance!

I’m looking forward to having warm spring weather and possibly seeing some cherry blossoms somewhere in the world soon!

Well, I could see the March 3rd’s eclipse very clearly. How was it over your head? The picture below is not the eclipse, but it is another face of the moon from my slideshow “Lunar”.

Take care, and I hope to see YOU all in Poland soon!

Best wishes,
