Announcing the New Cosmos of Photography Sendai Exhibition 2012
The New Cosmos of Photography exhibition of award-winning works will be held from May 25 at sendai mediatheque.
Works on display at the New Cosmos of Photography Sendai Exhibition 2012 include those from one Grand Prize winner (Osaka resident), four Excellence Award winners, and 20 Honorable Mention winners, which were chosen from a total of 1,305 entries to New Cosmos of Photography 2011 (34th competition), as well as new works of Karen Sato, Grand Prize winner of New Cosmos of Photography 2010 (33rd competition). This touring exhibition brings together featured exhibits from the highly reputed “New Cosmos of Photography 2011 Tokyo Exhibition” held at Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography in November of last year.
This time, there are also special exhibits by four photographers, Toru Ito, Panda Kanno, Takako Kido, and Haruko Nakamura who were born, or live in the Tohoku region and are successive award winners. This was planned as a way to contribute to the post-quake cultural reconstruction.
Please come and take a look.
Conversations between artists and visitors will be arranged during the exhibition to provide an opportunity to exchange opinions on the artists’ concepts, intentions, and photographic expressions.
