Genius loci: The Higashikawa Awards

Sat, Jan 30, 2016 - Sun, May 15


Details

Higashikawa, located in the Kamikawa district of Hokkaido, declared itself a town of photography in 1985, and has held the Higashikawa International Photo Festival every summer since. Over the last 30 years, the accompanying Higashikawa Awards have celebrated both Japanese and international photographers, exhibiting their works and prints. This exhibition at Towada Art Center featured works from the Higashikawa Collection on the theme of genius loci , the protective spirit of a place. The photographers shown therein may have been subconsciously aware of some incorporeal presence when capturing the landscapes and lives of their subjects, as if in conversation with the mystical.
