We’re excited to showcase our annual DIY group show in August, featuring Dennis Grieder, Keoki Saguibo & Ray Nagai.
“In 2008, my senior year elective was photography. I didn’t think anything of it at the time, just thought it would be a cool class to take since i had majority of my credits. I didn’t know it would change my view on life. Now I can’t walk around outside without thinking about my surroundings and how I could capture them on my camera. However, The first thing I learned about was photograms , and I’ve been messing with them since I started photography in 2008. You can really get creative with them and I enjoy the adventure of the process involved. I’ll be displaying some photograms of feathers along with some overlay work. Thanks for viewing, Aloha.”
I am Ray Nagai also known as okolefilm in IG. Im a photographer based in Kanagawa, Japan.
I was born and raised in Japan. I spent my college years in Honolulu, Hawaii and then I dove into my photography journey with my very first camera, Lomography Diana F+.
I mainly shoot landscapes, seascapes ,and the beauty in our daily life, to capture the moment of the times that might be never going to happen again. I have my own darkroom at home and I do develop and print(only b&w yet) on my own.
