Tokyo Photograhic Art Mueseum develops a variety of programs to support the creativity of those who challenge the limits of photography and moving images, discovering artists with strong potential and providing a setting for new creative activities. Among these one of the most important is the annual “Contemporary Japanese Photography” exhibition, organized each year across a specific theme. For this, the thirteenth exhibition in this series, our theme is Tokyo. The works shown are by contemporary artists, each of whom approaches Tokyo, the megacity, from his/her own distinct perspective.
Tokyo is known, of course, as one of the world’s leading cities. But there is much more to Tokyo than the crowds of busy pedestrians rushing across intersections that have come to represent Tokyo in the global media. Tokyo is a city where people live, where change is never ending. It is a city that many photographers have attempted to document, ever since photography was introduced to Japan, but how does this city look through the eyes of contemporary photographers? For this exhibition six promising artists have been invited to show us their own eyes upon Tokyo.
