Yasukichi Murakami – Through a Distant Lens

“We take so many photographs. How do we know which ones are important, which ones matter?” A multi media theatre production with photographic projections, video, original music, soundscape, and dramatic action on the life of Yasukichi Murakami and the search of his missing photographs. A meditation on love, truth and, in a digital age where cameras proliferate, the nature of photography.
