This event has ended.

This is the fifth exhibition in the “showcase” series curated by Minoru Shimizu. From its inception in 2012, these exhibitions, as implied by the name showcases talented young photographers.
The theme of showcase #5 is “Encountering Chance – Serendipity”. What do we, as the viewer rather than the photographer, see in these snapshots? Photography consists of the objects photographed and techniques employed by the photographer (effects such as composition, angles, colors, and contrast). But if the viewer only reacts to the techniques employed, disregarding the context and stories of the objects, then they are not observing the photograph itself. The viewer should not focus on the techniques of the photographer. Rather, the viewer should see the photograph in its entirety.
Snapshots were once a way to explore the reality of the daily life and to express, and preserve, that reality. For “showcase#5″, chosen are three artists who photograph scenes from their everyday lives. However, they do not search for specific realities but rather pick up “episodes” that they happen upon, creating their own photography from those episodes.
The word “Snapshot” has a history of over a century since A. Stieglitz first used the word “snapshot” for his work (A Snapshot, Paris 1911). Snapshots 2016 is part of a continuous experiment to bond society and the photographers themselves.
