Fishing For Gyotaku’s Dwight Hwang taught himself traditional Japanese fish printing—used by fishermen in place of taxidermy to memorialize the fish they’ve caught—while living in Tokyo. This life-sized, signed and stamped print reproduces an original rice paper rubbing that depicts a tiny Asian salmon called “yamame” (or “cherry salmon”), an exotic salmon found only in Japan, Korea, and Siberia.
