    There are very few archival photographs of Southern African Americans dating from the early 1900’s. The original black and white images fascinated Yuko with their powerful imagery, compelling her to paint color and life into them. She is particularly captivated and moved by the dichotomy of strength and humility etched in these human portraits.
    Through her series of paintings, she hopes to bridge a connection between her nameless subjects and our inner selves using her Japanese heritage, to celebrate the strength, to honor the humility, and to share the beauty that is in all our lives.
