Gallery Talk | Photographer Talk: Jerry Takigawa (Zoom)


Jerry Takigawa is a photographer, designer and writer living in Carmel Valley California. Takigawa believes that artists tend to be comfortable in the space of not knowing. Consequently, they stand in contrast to our answer-dominated, results-oriented culture. Artists make things that didn't exist before. As a Japanese American artist, Takigawa is constantly practicing integrative thinking--bringing two things together that seem to be opposites and making them new/better together than they were separately.
