OUR STORY #03
The International Collection of the Japan Washigraph Photo Association
The Japan Washigraph Photo Association was established in January 2020 with the purpose of "promoting an international project to restore the value of photographic culture through Washigraph Photo(washi photography)".
At the time of its inauguration, approximately 40 artists participated in the project, collecting approximately 500 works of Washigraph Photo and works of tableware using Washigraph Photo.
The collected works were presented at the Orenburg Museum of Art in Russia in July 2021 as the Japan Washigraph Photo Exhibition.
The exhibition was very well received by the many visitors.
Washigraph Photo was highly acclaimed as "photographic print art of light".
Since then, the exhibition has traveled to various museums in Russia, and is currently in its fifth location. (As of August 2022)
The exhibition is scheduled to be held at a different location after this.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the people at the museums who have hosted the exhibitions.
The Japan Washigraph Photo Association has begun an international call for entries in order to hold similar Japan Washigraph Photo exhibitions and solo shows in other countries.
We will participate in the international collection of the Japan Washigraph Photo Association.
We will continue to present the beautiful and The Changing Metropolis of Tokyo (Vivid Hue Toky).
