AKITO TSUDA, born in Hamamatsu, Japan, came to Chicago in 1990 to attend Columbia College. As a newcomer in a foreign place, he felt at home with and was particularly fascinated by the Pilsen community.
After more than two decades, Akito wishes to return to Pilsen to share with the community a new book of photography and an exhibit of the photos. In a time of cultural erasure and displacement, highlighting the history and beauty of the neighborhood and its people is as important as ever.
PHOTO EXHIBIT OPENING RECEPTION / BOOK RELEASE PARTY: Friday, October 27 @ 7-10pm
Presented by Cultura in Pilsen. Exhibit will run for 2 weeks.
