Hello there!
Thanks for visiting my web!

How are you all? Excuse me that I’ve been away travelling a lot this summer…

I’ve been to Japan and the USA since my last update.

How was your summer? Hope you have all been well and doing good!
This summer in Japan has been extremely hot and humid! It was absolutely the most abnormal summer ever. I’m back to Belgium now, and the weather here is alright. I hope that your city has a good one!

By the way, I have lots of things to let you know this time since I had a long rest from this NEWS page! It’s kind of nice to come back, isn’t it?

Ok…, here is NEWS about my upcoming shows (solo shows in Czech Republic and Switzerland, and a group show in Japan).

In this solo show, my classic photo series “Visions of the Other Side”, which is my origin of “photo Surrealism”, is planned to be exhibited. This series of work has been shown in the USA (Savannah, GA) in 2002, in Poland (Lodz) in 2004, and in Belgium (Brussels) in 2006.

Belgium has changeable weather nowadays, but after raining, the sunshine is so clear and beautiful… I just love to see the sunshine! And, after raining, lots of snails come out from greens in a park, and you know, it’s hard to walk and not stand on them! I like snails, too. What lovely and curious creatures, they are!

Looking forward to meeting with YOU at one of my upcoming shows!
Ok, I got to run…

Take care, and have a great season in your city!
See you soon :)

Best wishes,
Reiko
