Exhibiting in Japan was a dream come true: the images and memory of the MT. ROKKO INTERNATIONAL PHOTO FESTIVAL EXHIBITION in the amazing Sorakuen Garden by night. It was a like a fairytale to exhibit there, candlelights everywhere, big projection screen, geisha’s walking around, lots of incredible reactions, tears shared with strangers… Thank you, thank you, thank you Takeki Sugiyama for this great experience! And thank you Ayaka Ujikawa for all the organisation.
A big thank you to the workshop tutors for their expertise and passion: Santiago Vanega photographer and boardmember of Center Santa Fe, Hiroshi Onishi of CASE Publishing, Steven Lee of Kuala Lumpur Photography Festival KLPF, Kurt Tong photographer and reviewer, Kodo Chijiiwa of Yakushima Photography Festival and Suzzana Chew art curator. It was a pleasure to meet you all.
Special thanks go to the Embassy of the Netherlands in Japan for their generous support for this amazing trip to Kobe.
