Asian Safari

Snapshot exhibit by a Russian paparazzo chronicles the Far East.


Photographer Anastasiy Safari's jaunts to the Orient are captured in more than 20 snaps, on display through the middle of next month in Rocky River. One of the photos depicts a Tibetan kitchen at midnight. "It has a really reddish-orange color temperature when he uses natural light. It's very intriguing, because everything looks like Hell's Kitchen. And in some of his landscapes, you can almost see the ghosts of the people who used to live in the area," says Matt Cook, owner of Studio of 5 Rings. "There's depth in what they say and what they don't say." The exhibit is on display from noon to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and noon to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, through Saturday, April 12, at Studio of 5 Rings, 20160 Center Ridge Road in Rocky River. Admission is free. Call 440-333-9700 or visit
Fridays, Saturdays, 12-9 p.m.; Tuesdays-Thursdays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: March 1. Continues through April 12, 2008
