Daido Moriyama And The Camera Hunters
This October 2016,  Monogram Asia and JCH in conjunction with Akio Nagasawa Gallery will be hosting an event from the 8th to the 10th in Tokyo. So what does that mean? Well,  this is your chance to meet Japanese photography legend, Daido Moriyama. Oh, and you will have the pleasure of putting up with me too.

So this is the deal, for 3 days you will get to take in the spots of Tokyo, checking out camera stores, a camera fair and interesting shooting locations. And on the final day you will be whisked off to the Akio Nagasawa Gallery, for a private Q&A session with Daido Moriyama, including a look at new work and possibly even him signing things (I dunno, like cameras?)

Monogram Asia have very kindly asked me to co-host the event and be a sort of guide to Tokyo, so we will get a couple of days to explore the city, maybe find some camera bargains, eat some funky ramen and have a lot of fun. There will also be a special surprise at the end, but I am not telling, you will just have to come.

The schedule will include:


Saturday, 8 October 2016

    Sorry to ask so directly Bellamy – I’m genuinely interested – but what does it cost?

      Hi Brent, sorry, I cannot put the price on the site. Please contact Monogram Asia through their site for more information.

    Look forward to reading your blog, and interviews of the participants, as well as seeing their photographs and reading their entries, and “What’s in the Bag” ad hopefully some video clips on you-tube to top-it-off.

      Pretty much all of that is unlikely. I will not be conducting interviews as I will not have time. And I absolutely will not be doing any more Youtube clips. As far as I am concerned I will never do youtube again.
      Many thanks
