The Day After This Night: Love & Loss in the Orient

Photographic exhibition – Michael C Hughes

The exhibition represents an ambitious three year project regarding love & loss, and reflects on how events can consume and overwhelm us. There is a very human approach to try and control our lives, but frequently we are left simply endeavouring to process an event and adapt to the consequences.

Our lives at times seen so complicated, and yet at other moments, it is apparent that we are of no significance at all. It is this human struggle to accept either state that interests the artist.

Images comprise of street life, landscapes and portraiture from across Japan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Burma, Thailand and Singapore. Ranging from the tsunami hit region of Japan through to portraits of Khmer Rouge survivors in Cambodia.

Michael has spent his working life in the visual arts and design industry. He has an MA in Photography from the University of Brighton and also owns and runs a local design agency.
