Trails to Prayer

Hosted by LSE Arts

Atrium Gallery, Old Building

Photographer MAKIKO made a pilgrimage to the uninhabited Japanese island of Nozaki, which has been gradually deserted since mid 60’s. She was intrigued by a saga of ‘Hidden’ Christians who settled on the island in the early 19th century, practicing Christianity in secret for decades (while the country was closed for any foreign trade and cultural exchanges). A century later they had their own churches for worship but then left.

This stunning black and white exhibition follows her spiritual journey through the mountain trail where Christians walked regularly between the late 19th and mid-20thcentury to attend Mass. Whilst trekking, she captures wild Kyushu deer and trees in the wild forest as well as the unusual landscape, influenced by the volcanic activities and the harsh climate.

This exhibition runs from 24 April - 5 May.

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts website.
