Alyssa Fujita Karoui is a Japanese-Tunisian artist based in San Francisco. Alyssa left the corporate world of Information Systems consulting for the life-changing pursuit of photography. She graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in the Fall of 2015 with a BFA in photography.
Her work explores transcendent moments of pure seeing. Her images are invitations to pause, small meditations creating space for contemplation and reflection upon a shared perceptual existence.
You are asking too many questions,
my mother used to say.
Sometimes there is silence, and that's okay.
I've learned that sometimes, when I walk around the city with my camera, I can tame the inner chatter in my mind. By looking attentively at ephemeral moments and seemingly insignificant objects of the everyday, minor revelations come to the surface, time flows in strange ways and sight becomes mysteriously heightened.
Minor Revelations are small meditations, a conversation with the ordinary, a momentary access to a timeless present where unspectacular scenarios connect us to larger moments of clarity, intimacy and grace.
