Detroit-Tokyo Photobook and Art Event

Two artists – one from Detroit… the other from Tokyo… are celebrating their four year collaboration in the Metro area later this month. The result is a photo book called “Parallel Universe” by sculptor Dick Cruger and illustrator Yasuo Tanaka. WDET’s Rob St. Mary spoke to Cruger about the project.
