TOKYO: EXPLORATIONS IN THE METROPOLIS - WITH IBARIONEX PERELLO AND GEORGE NOBECHI - DECEMBER 2019

"Tokyo, Japan" — the mere name conjures images of a dynamic, sprawling city, at times bewildering and even inaccessible to foreigners. Underneath the surface of a metropolis constantly in motion is the soul of this city, where life flows from the boardroom to the dive bar, from residential neighborhoods and back again, pulsing through iconic hubs like Shibuya and Ginza via the commuter train lines that are the lifeblood of the city.  "Organized chaos" is a defining feature of the culture of Tokyo.

"THE WINTER COLOR OF JAPAN" WITH ARTHUR MEYERSON AND GEORGE NOBECHI

TRANSCENDENTAL MYSTICISM: A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY IN JAPAN - WITH KEITH CARTER AND GEORGE NOBECHI

If things cannot be understood by ordinary reasoning, we need to go deeper to find our spiritual truths. Whenever I have looked at Keith Carter’s photographs, I have come to understand how a photograph can be transcendental—how the tangible aspects like setting, focus, composition and moments do not provide us with a full understanding of why the image speaks to us. Keith’s photographs do not claim any absolutes, yet they offer us the possibility of reaching a deeper meaning of the life that is unfolding around us.
