Fish, Out of Water:
Aug 6 to Oct 5, 2009. This work is the result of three years of exploration of the Japanese landscape by photographer and professor Paul Kohl. He explores the state the French call depaysement, the sense the traveler experiences where nothing is as you have known it; where the bird's song, the raked gravel, the telephone's ring are joltingly exotic. Kohl's unusual technique employs scanned black and white negatives using Photoshop as a darkroom. He then prints on handmade Japanese paper on an Epson 7880 printer using pigment inks.
