KQEK.com / ArtScopeTO --- Interview with photographer Pengkuei Ben Huang (2019)
For the latest edition of ArtScopeTO, I interview photographer Pengkuei (Ben) Huang, whose current eco-series SOLEMN PINES FADING THINGS is exhibited at Toronto's Urban Gallery (400 Queen Street East) from May 2-31st, as part of the 2019 Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival. Huang discusses the genesis of his series, which examines the location and people in Japan's Tohoku region, and the lingering effects of the triple hit of an earthquake, tsunami, and the Fukushima Daiishi nuclear disaster in 2011. Further info and stills from the exhibition are available via the Editor's Blog at KQEK.com. If you enjoyed this podcast, connect with us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

Special Thanks to Ben Huang for his generous time, Urban Gallery's manager Calvin Hambrook and curator Allen Shugar, and Glenda Fordham at Fordham P.R. for facilitating the interview.
