Art made in Japan

Bright P12 College student Jack Raymond (left) unveiled his photographic exhibition Juvenile in Japan on Friday night. The exhibition captured moments of Jack’s year-long stay in Japan. Jack said he couldn’t have done it without the help of mum Janmaree Duguid (right).

DURING his 12 month Rotary exchange Harrietville teenager Jack Raymond spent a lot of time behind the lens of his camera, and last Friday night he unveiled parts of Japan that may go unnoticed by the everyday traveller in his photographic exhibition.
Jack decided to hold the Juvenile in Japan exhibition as a way to say thank you to the Rotary Club of Bright for giving him the opportunity to visit Japan and around 40 photos capture his many different experiences in Japan.
Bright Rotarian Lindsay Jolley officially opened the exhibition and said Jack made the most of his year-long stay in the Land of the Rising Sun.
“In 2014 the Rotary Club of Bright hosted Jack in a year-long exchange in Japan,” he said.
“Jack found it quite difficult to adapt to the cultural differences between the two countries, but he overcame the obstacles and stuck it out.”
After weeks of organising the exhibition Jack said he was thrilled to see so many people at the opening and hoped more would venture out to see it.
