In the summer of 2010, exhibiting artist – James MacSwain – traveled to the south of China to Yunnan Province visiting the cities of Dali and Jinghong. From Jinghong, MacSwain traveled into Laos where he took a boat down the Mekong River to arrive at the Buddhist temple city of Luang Prabang.
MacSwain explains that:
this exhibition consists of photographs taken on that journey. The photos are shown in pairs so that the imagination of the viewer can compare and contrast the ideas expressed in each photo. Surrounding the photographs are beautiful colourful papers collected from various Buddhist temple complexes. These provide yet another frame for the photographs and act as guardians of the exhibition.
The exhibition was on view in The Corridor Gallery from February 1 – March 24, 2011.
