We're so excited to announce our next exhibition of photographs by Richard Murai:
As light moves, shadows shift and practitioners of an ancient faith celebrate, pray and reflect amidst sacred symbols, iconography and temple architecture. The religious complex provide revered spaces for prayer and devotion, and timeworn surfaces of wood, stone, metal and cloth offer temporal constancy and ancestral connections for generations of devotees, and a lush visual landscape for the visitor.
These photographs are selections from my travels in Asia that reveal visual artifacts and rituals from a golden age as people seek to reconcile and preserve ancient traditions amidst conflicting modern values. The images comprise an ongoing voyage of discovery and exploration that documents sacred spaces and evidence of spiritual devotion, past and present, within unique and distinctive cultures.
