Dear Shaded Viewers,
KYOTOGRAPHIE International Photography Festival celebrates its 10th edition with over 10 exhibitions. One thing that makes KYOTOGRAPHIE different from other photography fairs is that each photographer is given their own location in iconic Kyoto venues with original scenography. The festival is held annually over a four week period. This edition’s theme is “ONE”.
“One is everything and everything is One”
This saying is rooted in Japan’s Buddhist teachings and expresses the idea that each speck of dust (the individual) represents the universe (the whole), and the universe is a magnificent organic combination of the individual and the whole. Every speck is relevant and meaningful in this whole; connected and existing as “One”.
In 2022, KYOTOGRAPHIE wants to celebrate each person’s unique existence and our collective diversity.
ONE is an opportunity to share our 10th year as the inspiration for reconnection, renewal, and revival.
