Supporting Japan-related programs in European Capitals of Culture

Photo exhibition : European Eyes on Japan/Japan Today Vol.18

San Sebastian 2016


This year saw the 18th of the photography project European Eyes on Japan – Japan Today. Insightful photographer Jon Cazenave, from San Sebastian, Spain, host of this year’s European Capital of Culture, visited Kagawa prefecture. Supported by Tetsuya Ogasawara of local gallery Book Marute and many others, he spent a month there producing work.

Handmade Japanese paper, sunlight photographs made by waves on the Seto inland sea, and such experimental approaches as new techniques using screenshots from Google Maps both depict the here and now of Kagawa prefecture and question everything viewing the shared roots of human beings spanning race, religion and national borders at the outset of a search for the identity of his own Basque homeland. Shown with the assistance of Getxo Photo, which holds annual photography exhibitions in the port town of Getxo outside San Sebastian, their exhibition attracted considerable attention in photography circles around the world.
