Program: [Art residence]

From February 10 till March 10, 2016, a Japanese photographer Lisa Someda is working on “Riverside” project at the NCCA Art Residence in Kronstadt.

“Riverside” is a series of photographs of the riverbank. Someda takes photographs of the opposite shores of rivers at intervals of about 50 m, joins pictures together into a one long piece and installs it mainly in public spaces. Someda has been making this series since 2004, every time changing seasons and places. In 2005 her work “Snow” was shown at the Sapporo Odori 500m Underground Walkway Gallery in Japan. In Someda’s new photo series planned to be made during the residency, she intends to reflect beautiful landscapes of Saint Petersburg and Kronstadt.

Lisa Someda (b. 1975) is a Japanese photographer, currently based in Kyoto, Japan. Graduated from Kyoto Institute of Technology (the Faculty of Design and Engineering).
