KYOTOGRAPHIE INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL


 

[5th edition theme]
「LOVE」
Photography is a Love Affair with Life
Burk Uzzle (American photojournalist, previously member of Magnum Photos and president from 1979 to 1980)

For its 5th anniversary edition, KYOTOGRAPHIE wishes to celebrate LOVE.
Those feelings and concepts we call LOVE vary according to our background, including our religion, our view of history, where we come from, and our living environment. Such differences, however, can at times cause indifference, or turn love to hate, giving rise to serious problems that plague modern society, such as violence toward the vulnerable. This may be why humans know love to be so precious, and why we instinctively seek it in many forms.
“To LOVE” essentially means recognizing the existence of and connecting with things outside ourselves. Through LOVE we connect with other people, with society, with nature, with art, and with ourselves. With LOVE the world can become a more peaceful place.
It is our continuing dream, in making this festival a reality, to share “LOVE” through photography.
