    Ulana Switucha

Tokyo's extraordinary architecture is a blend of traditional values and contemporary expression. This dynamic city has earned a global reputation for cutting edge architectural designs. Light and shadow reduces the buildings to minimalist forms, reflecting the strong sense of place.

Ulana Switucha has photographed throughout Asia for over 30 years and currently resides in Hong Kong. She creates evocative landscape, portrait and documentary photographs working in both colour and black and white. Influenced by a Japanese aesthetic, there is an evolving minimalist style and contemplative peacefulness in her recent work.
