1. Jamie Hawkesworth Exhibits Preston Bus Station at Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo

    From the press release: ‘Taka Ishii Gallery Photography / Film is pleased to present Preston Bus Station, an exhibition of works by Jamie Hawkesworth from August 2 to August 31. The exhibition, which will be his first in Japan, presents 139 photographs from the series Preston Bus Station, in which he shot young people coming and going inside a brutalist bus station. The series was his first and became the foundation of his practice. 
    Preston Bus Station was the first place where I really looked at light. The huge bus station windows literally showed me how light moved and changed throughout the day. I began to see, feel and understand its effect, I was becoming sensitive to light. Being patient in such a transitional space began to amplify every detail. Everything became significant. In the continuous motion of people’s days, light became a magnifying   glass—a tool to study and appreciate life. A cold circular space became heaven. Jamie Hawkesworth, July 2019.’
