“Ton’s photographic work stems from his sensitivities as a graphic designer and the need to resolve, organise and simplify things in a way that make visual navigation easy, pleasant and soothing. In some of the works featured in this exhibition, he has successfully compressed a three-dimensional scene into two dimensions, leaving the viewer with a sense of wonder. A very refreshing approach when today most media are flooded with 3D gimmicks, obscuring the real stories of craftsmen and artists.” – Marcel Heijnen

“Taking pride in everything they do, the Japanese always strive for perfection. A commitment towards hidden beauty and a sense of tranquility that can be found within the smallest detail. I have attempted to capture some of it during my travels through Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara and Osaka.”  – Ton
