After COVID-19 forced New York City into lockdown, Yojiro Imasaka paused his work on large-scale photographs he had been preparing for art fairs as once-urgent deadlines evaporated with events forfeited indefinitely.

Re-focusing his efforts, he began looking over negatives from a recent trip to his native Japan. Inspired by a series of images depicting a bird's-eye-views of a Northern Japanese forest, he transformed the selection into 50 relatively small-scale gelatin silver prints. The results are now on view as a solo presentation titled "Correspondence" at Miyako Yoshinaga.

A portion of the artist's proceeds from this exhibition will go to Doctors Without Borders.
