A photography exhibition by the globally recognized photographer, Russel Wong, featuring Tange works, “WA” : TANGE through the eyes of Russel Wong will be held at the Japan Creative Centre (JCC), Embassy of Japan in Singapore.
This exhibition will showcase 22 of Russel’s photographs featuring 5 buildings by father-and-son architects Kenzo Tange and Paul Noritaka Tange with the Japanese spirit of “WA” which means “Harmony”.
The main theme of this exhibition, “WA”, marks a turning point for celebrity photographer Russel Wong in both his practice and his long-standing friendship with Paul Noritaka Tange. “WA” in Tange buildings is reflected through the lens of a portrait photographer acclaimed for capturing Asia’s defining public personalities.
Russel Wong is described as “celebrity photographer who also photographs celebrities”, and enjoys the acclaim of being the first Singaporean to break into the notoriously difficult Hollywood movie industry. He is also one of an elite group of photographers assigned to photograph covers for Time magazine.
On August 3rd, Paul Noritaka Tange will appear as a special guest for an exclusive dialogue session by Russel Wong. They will discuss Russel’s inspiration and share behind-the-scenes stories of the exhibition and their collaboration.
