KAMAKURA, Japan (Dec. 7, 2014) — American-born photographer Mateo Hevezi brings his “AGNOSCO – Spirits Among Us” exhibition to one of Japan’s most storied cities.

The Kirara Gallery Kamakura presents selected photographs of the 55 images contained in the AGNOSCO collection. The exhibition opens Tuesday and runs through December 15.

AGNOSCO is a Latin word that means “to acknowledge.”

Mateo, 48, premiered AGNOSCO in May 2014 in Tokyo. The Kirara showing is the first time Mateo has exhibited work in Kanagawa. Previous exhibitions of his include shows in Okinawa, Japan; Syracuse, New York; San Diego, California; and Houston, Texas.

He grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently is based in Kanagawa, where he is producing exhibitions and writing for his first book project titled “Shot by a Marine,” a collection photos and short stories from his 18 years serving as a military combat correspondent and photographer.

Mateo has traveled through much of East Asia. The photographs in his AGNOSCO collection were produced during ten years working in seven countries: America, Australia, Japan, Mexico, Micronesia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The exhibition at Kirara Gallery is a free event. The gallery is open daily from 10AM ~ 5PM.
