Stop by the Peabody Essex Museum and see the new exhibit by Toshio Shibata. One of Japan's preeminent landscape photographers, Toshio Shibata is known for exploring the delicate balance between human made structures and nature. Photographing water catchments, roads, dams and bridges, he examines the unique appearance of such structures in his native land. Through his lens, river beds can look like origami, and waterfalls resemble kimonos. This exhibition of 28 large-format works will be the artist's first solo show in an American museum since 1995 and the first time his color images will be shown in America. The Peabody Essex Museum is open Tuesday-Sunday from 10am to 5pm, and this exhibit is showing until December 31, 2013.
This Day in History
On this day in 1933, the modern legend of the Loch Ness Monster is born when a sighting makes local news. The newspaper Inverness Courier related an account of a local couple who claimed to have seen "an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface." The story of the "monster" became a media phenomenon, with London newspapers sending correspondents to Scotland and a circus offering a 20,000 pound sterling reward for capture of the beast.
I hope to see you here!
