• Tokyo-Ga: Tokyo-Ga created an extensive photographic project: describing Tokyo Scapes by 100 Photographers. Tokyo reacts quickly to changes of the times; as the largest and most recognizable city in Japan it has become a site of unity. The idea for Tokyo-Ga originated as an internal response to the devastating natural disasters that occurred in Japan in 2011. These events brought an awareness of the global connectedness of not just Japanese people, but all of humanity.
The Wall Street Journal review of the 2012 edition of the New York Photo Festival provides a succinct overview of the festival’s theme and highlights here.
Yesterday, New York Photo Festival attendees were treated to a very special panel discussion featuring photographers from three continents. Curator Claude Grunitzky, brought together Christian Witkin, Evangelia Kranioti, and Irmelie Krekin for his exhibition the Curse and the Gift and we were lucky enough to have them all in the same room to discuss their work.
The evening was marked by a one-of-a-kind book and multimedia presentation from Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid, author of The Book of Ice. Accompanied by Adrianna Mateo on violin, Miller treated the crowd to some very special compositions in between stories about his trip to Antarctica. He also touched on everything from the remix culture we live in to how he turns visual and environmental elements into new sonic arrangements.
Stay tuned for a very special additional programming announcement for tomorrow…
History was made last night here at NYPH’12 HQ at the Arena; amazing stories and heartfelt insights from Eugene Richards, Reza, Platon, Lori Grinker, and Bruce Davidson for moderator Glenn Ruga’s panel On Razor’s Edge: Form and Content in Documentary Photography. Really the best we have done I think. Intimate, remarkable, incredible. Thanks for everyone who asked superb questions and made the masters think and expound and stun us with their experiences and perspectives.
