Press Release
Leica Store Soho is delighted to announce the solo exhibition of artist & photographer Adam Marelli opening Thursday May 8th, 2014.  “Traces of a Lost Ceremony” asks why are ancient traditions worth preserving?  To his surprise, Marelli discovered that in spite of the Japanese craftsmen’s distinguished histories, each generation must prove themselves, not only to stand up to history, but to deserve a place in the future.  If a master craftsman hopes to  leave a legacy, they must examine themselves artistically, philosophically, and practically every step of the way.  In the end, craft is simply a tool for unlocking the mystery of a meaningful existence.

“The paradox of balancing the past with

the future is the invisible force that lies

at the heart of the Japanese craftsman.”

–Adam Marelli
