NEW photo exhibit!


Disappearing Shadows and Sharing Nostalgia
by Erik Shirai

Opening Reception
May 13th, 7-10 PM

TRUNK
68 Jay Street (Water and Front)
Dumbo, Brooklyn

During this year's New York Photo Festival, Trunk is proud to feature works by Erik Shirai.

Erik Shirai is a self-taught photographer and cinematographer working around the world. He considers himself a vagabond, developing his intuitions to understand his surroundings and the people that inhabit it. His focus is to document the human condition and to present a voice, allowing people to tell their stories. His goal is not only to bring awareness but also to bridge the idea that we are all human and that our similarities outweigh our differences. And that ‘being human’ is a universal language that we all need to understand no matter how difficult it may be to perceive the circumstances.

Erik Shirai has showcased his work in many group exhibitions; he was one of few photographers selected in the exhibit entitled “Documentarian” juried by MAGNUM photographer Eli Reed. He was also nominated in last years NY Photo Awards at the New York Photo Festival.

He launched his own production company, Cebu Osani Films in 2008. The same ideal that was behind his photographs has been the foundation of his production company.

Erik Shirai is currently based in Brooklyn.
