Rice Media Center hosts Agustin Estrada’s ‘Shizen: On the Art of Looking at Nature’

Agustín Estrada’s photography exhibit “Shizen: On the Art of Looking at Nature,” which showcases intricate perspectives of nature in the context of Japanese culture, opened at the Rice Media Center Main Gallery Tuesday, Sept. 18. While “Shizen” translates directly to “nature,” this broad term is categorized into three distinct aspects that are individually explored and developed by Estrada. The first is “Niwa,” Japanese ponds and gardens that serve as “pure places” to interact with nature. The second is “Hanami,” the blooming of flowers in early spring, and the third is “Momiji,” the falling and changing colors of leaves in autumn.
