New Japan, Old Japan / Kyoto intl photo festival a cultural crossroads
By Ryuzo Suzuki / Yomiuri Shimbun PhotographerKYOTO — An international photography festival called Kyotographie started on April 15 in Kyoto, one of the biggest cities of traditional culture in the world.
Precious artworks and brilliant collections by photographers from Japan and around the world are being exhibited in historic buildings, including a temple and machiya residences, as well as modern architectural spaces. Various related events such as lectures and workshops are also being held. Even as photography festivals become more common in various parts of the world, few such festivals are held in Japan.
