THEME SUMMARY

© Kenshu Shintsubo

The word "photograph" is composed of the word for "light" and the word for a "drawn object." Try to capture a new face of this world, such as a scene before your eyes or an abstract sensation or image that you wish to convey through photography, by focusing on the light. In the process, you may find that you have captured something that you had never intended to or something that unexpectedly encapsulates your perceptual or emotional experience as you were taking the photographs. In that regard, try to consider the approach you have taken from the perspective of the techniques and materials used as well as the ideas and connections that were brought into play through these elements.
[Submission Period] from April 9 to June 10
