Kyoto life Blogs

GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries
to Kyoto, and want to share how to enjoy the Kyoto life. These blogs are quite useful for visiting Kyoto, and also
for people who hope to live in Japan.

Naoko Tamura Photo Exhibition

  • August 14-2010
  • Chikako Takemoto
  • Art,Kyoto

This soft, gentle and peaceful photo (above) is one of photos by Naoko Tamura, based in Kyoto. Her photo exhibition is held at Taka Ishii Gallery Kyoto, 10 min-walk from Kyoto Station. This exhibition is featuring the scene at the psychiatric hospital, Clinique de La Borde in France. The patients are strolling the forest by their bicycles with their own cloths. The photo looks heart-warming, quiet and at the same time, makes us notice the difference between this hospital and other psychiatric hospitals including those in Japan. There are about 10 photo works in the gallery, all of them are made the color shade off into white, created the gentle, imaginary and so ucnique world.

You can spend a special afternoon at Taka Ishii Gallery feel like a loft in N.Y. (Tomio Koyama Gallery, located at the same floor of the same building, is also a nice gallery. Both are my favorite contemporary galleries in Kyoto!)
