‘European Eyes on Japan / Japan Today’. 12 November 2008- 11 January, 2009.
Photographs of Japan by John Davies, Marco Bohr, Cary Markerink, Mette Tronvoll.
Curated by Mikiko Kikuta
This interesting and important Euro-Japan collaboration comes to Liverpool for the first time. Now in its 10th year, the European Eyes on Japan / Japan Today photography project brings photographers from the various countries of Europe to Japan to rediscover in their work aspects of contemporary environment that we have take for granted and overlook.
Earlier this year four photographers including Liverpool-based John Davies, spent some time photographing landscapes and people in different parts of Japan. The resulting exhibition and book features the industrial area below Mt Fuji, the people of a small village in Ibaraki and a small island and bomb-affected area of Nagasaki.
This exhibition takes place at Novas Contemporary Urban Centre (3rd Floor)
Co-organised by EU-Japan Fest Japan Committee and Novas Arts
