"This photo captures a couple of school girls browsing an art exhibit at the Kanazawa Museum of Contemporary Art. While it may appear as though they are peering out of a window into a wooded forest or jungle, it actually is a canvas with a very high resolution image printed onto it. The lack of frame around the canvas makes it further blend into the wall making it truly appear to be an opening beyond. Beside this, I felt the matching uniforms spoke to the traditions and expectations of school children in Japan and wanted to capture the way in which the students experienced the gallery."
