Exhibition “European Eyes on Japan / Japan Today vol.16”


The project “European Eyes on Japan / Japan Today” began in 1999.  Every year, two European photographers are invited by the various prefectures of Japan, to record images on the theme of contemporary Japanese people and how they live their lives, for posterity. The goal of the project is to provide an opportunity for Japanese to reacquaint themselves with aspects of their daily lives that they have tended to overlook and for Europeans to deepen their understanding of Japan and become more familiar with the distant Far East country. This year, the photographers participating in the project are Alexander Gronsky from Riga and Nina Korhonen from Stockholm.
