On March 29th, the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center will hold a paid reception and lecture by Tetsugo Hyakutake for his work, Silent Existence, made in the aftermath of the earthquake that devasted Japan in 2011.
This even is generously sponsored by Zama Restaurant in Rittenhouse Square. The suggested donation is $15 and proceeds will be split with the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund.

Over the years, Hyakutake has worked with Japan as the theme of his art, investigating pathos in relation to historical, social, and economic issues involving industrialization and urban and social development.
Through his artwork, Hyakutake creates what he calls his own “truth formed from the influences and experiences he has absorbed. His images attempt to portray only on version, but by doing so, he hopes to be able to bring out other meaningful “truths” that may lie deep inside the audience.
In partnership with Gallery 339 and Alan Klotz Gallery, PPAC will sell two distinct prints by Tetsugo Hyakutake during the course of his exhibition at PPAC. 100% of the proceeds from print sales will go to the Japan Society.
