AAJA-Asia invites you to a guided tour of the special exhibit, “A View of Daily Life,” 56 striking images by AP photographers from 31 countries. AP photo editor Junji Kurokawa, himself a passionate practitioner of daily life photography, will talk about feature photography and how he and other news photographers capture daily life around the world. The extensive exhibit is well worth a visit. The large-size prints are accompanied by a short statement with the photographer’s thinking behind each photo. It is in an enclosed but unheated area, so dress appropriately. After the tour, we’ll go to lunch at A16.
Please RSVP here and let us know if you’re going to join the lunch so we can make a reservation.
For those who can’t make the tour, the exhibit continues until April 22 at Gyoko-dori Underground Gallery, a passageway under Gyoko-dori in Marunouchi, between the Maru and Shinmaru buildings and right opposite the old Tokyo Station building.
