40th Kimura Ihei Award Winners Exhibition

Time Out says

Honouring the late Ihei Kimura, one of Japan's most renowned 20th-century photographers, the prestigious Kimura Ihei Award was established in 1975 and has been given out by the Asahi media group every year since. 2014's recipients are Okinawan Ryuichi Ishikawa and Tokyoite Kotori Kawashima, both of whose work is now on display at Shinjuku's Konica Minolta Gallery. The former's photos are deeply connected with his native island and its inhabitants, shining a light on questions of identity and belonging, while the latter has made his name with series like 'Mirai-chan', which portrayed a cute and playful little girl in a number of everyday situations, and 'Myojo', a result of Kawashima's recent three-year residency in Taiwan. This exhibit runs through April 20 and features around 80 shots in total.
