For the first time, part of the official 2018 Kyotographie program will travel to Tokyo where a wide range of exhibitions will feature acclaimed photographers from all over the world, including the late groundbreaking “chromophotographic” artist Masahisa Fukase, contemporary Chinese photographer Liu Bolin who body-paints himself into his urban surroundings, and avant-garde French “image maker” Jean-Paul Goude.
Kyotographie is a world-class photographic festival held in Kyoto for one month during spring showcasing 15 Japanese and international photography exhibitions in iconic Kyoto architecture, with tailored scenography. This new addition, aptly titled Tokyographie, will inhabit different areas of the Tokyo metropolis, mainly housed in Kyotographie sponsor venues.
Venues and opening dates vary depending on the exhibition. Check the event website for a complete schedule.
