I am now living in Tokyo and I will try, all along the year, to discover the museums of the city.
Today I went to the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, where an exhibition of Okamura Akihiko were being held, and I liked it a lot. I took the occasion to go to see the New Cosmos of Photography exhibition, where the works of the winners of a Canon photography contest are being exposed. I was particularly impressed by [MATSUOKA!], by Minami Asami, and by Inoue Naomi, whose website is here.

Du côté de chez Swann

Mais, quand d’un passé ancien rien ne subsiste, après la mort des êtres, après la destruction des choses, seules, plus frêles mais plus vivaces, plus immatérielles, plus persistantes, plus fidèles, l’odeur et la saveur restent encore longtemps, comme des âmes, à se rappeler, à attendre, à espérer, sur la ruine de tout le reste, à porter sans fléchir, sur leur gouttelette presque impalpable, l’édifice immense du souvenir.

And here's an amazing musical-theatrical interpretation of the novel of Boulgakov Le Maître et Marguerite, performed at the Avignon Festival! Don’t miss it, if you can understand french :)

虹は思わず微笑いました。
 「ええ、そうです。本とうはどんなものでも変わらないものはないのです。ごらんなさい。向こうのそらはまっさおでしょう。まるでいい孔雀石のようです。 けれどもまもなくお日さまがあすこをお通りになって、山へおはいりになりますと、あすこは月見草の花びらのようになります。それもまもなくしぼんで、やが てたそがれ前の銀色と、それから星をちりばめた夜とが来ます。
 そのころ、私は、どこへ行き、どこに生まれているでしょう。また、この眼の前の、美しい丘や野原も、みな一秒ずつけずられたりくずれたりして います。けれども、もしも、まことのちからが、これらの中にあらわれるときは、すべてのおとろえるもの、しわむもの、さだめないもの、はかないもの、みな かぎりないいのちです。わたくしでさえ、ただ三秒ひらめくときも、半時空にかかるときもいつもおんなじよろこびです」

「めくらぶどうと虹」、宮沢賢治
