Title: Shashin : Photography from Japan
Description: New York, The Council for Photography from Japan. 2015, First Edition. No Binding. Newspaper, Fine. Shashin Festival: Guidebook This twenty-eight-page tabloid publication (29,5 x 31 cm) includes a complete guide to all the festival events, exhibitions, and the Shashin symposium. The guidebook also features original contents: Interviews with Hiroshi Sugimoto, William Klein, curator Sandra Phillips, and feature writings. "SHASHIN: PHOTOGRAPHY FROM JAPAN is a multi-institution program aimed to raise awareness of photography from Japan in New York, foster an exchange, and stimulate discussion in multiple segments: Academics, students, art collectors, researchers, artists, photographers, Japanophiles, and the general public of New York City. The dynamic and diverse activities in photography found in Japan today connect to the field’s long history and the SHASHIN festival is dedicated to bringing that work and its discourse to an international audience on an ongoing basis by prompting research and discussion on a wide range of subjects that includes photography, the photobook, performance, and the literary culture associated with photography from Japan. The 2015 inaugural Festival program will include slideshows, film screenings, lectures, salon-type engagements, publications, and exhibitions. The entirety of the program is open to the general public and free of charge. (Some partner institutions will charge nominal attendance fees to cover incidental expenses.) The Festival will center around a symposium organized by The Council for Photography from Japan along with the New York Public Library and the International Center of Photography (ICP).".
