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.
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.
