Novi Sad 2022, European Eyes on Japan

"European Eyes on Japan/Japan Today" is a photography project that has been carried out since 1999 in cooperation with the European capital of culture each year.

This project consists in inviting to Japan photographers who are working in Europe to record for posterity images of the various prefectures of Japan on the theme of contemporary Japanese people and how they live their lives. They hope that this collection will prove 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 presence of their distant Far Eastern country.

The photographs shot in various locations around Japan are collected the following year in the “European Eyes on Japan” publications and in exhibitions featured in cities throughout Japan and Europe. Works that have completed the exhibition circuit are then donated to their prefectures of origin as part of the cultural heritage of their later generations.

The vol. 23 exhibition is now being held at the European Capital of Culture Novi Sad 2022 (Serbia). Serbian photographer Andrea Palasti, who photographed Osaka this summer, chose pyrethrum, an ingredient of mosquito coils imported from the Kingdom of Dalmatia to Japan at the end of the 19th century! Enjoy her meticulous research and unique works until Nov. 20!
