With KYOTOGRAPHIE’s opening rescheduled in September we are excited to celebrate and share with you our rearranged program and operations.
The 8th edition of the KYOTOGRAPHIE International Photography Festival will be held from September 19th–October 18th 2020.
Around the world, more and more of the population is suffering from nearsightedness.
The result of making profit and indulging in self-interest at any cost has made our society and environment crumble.
We face now an invisible terror, a virus sweeping across the world eroding our systems and securities. Acting alone is no longer an option, we must abandon our myopic governments and attitudes to band together to create a new paradigm.
The word “VISION” refers our physical functional vision, but also the mind’s eye. In these unprecedented times, what kind of future does the world see?
For KYOTOGRAPHIE 2020, “VISION” gathers diverse perspectives. In order to change the world, we must first change our “VISION” of it. After all, the world is created by our collective consciousness.
Once we can perceive the world’s problems as a cumulative effect of generations of mismanage- ment and avoidance, assuming responsibility for our past, and future actions as a species we can change the world.
Let’s share our VISION!
