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:
