Ametsuchi was great. It was the first photography collection I've ever seen in person, so take what you will from my review, but I found it all to be rather moving. Kawauchi took something I've only ever associated with panic, destruction, and fear and turned it into a peaceful, calm, accepting experience. The correlation between fire and college is clear now. I think I'm one of those people who just wants to see the world burn. What has art done to me?
