Saga Japan

2005

Karin Borghouts was invited to photograph in Japan in December 2005 at the invitation of the EU-Japan Fest Japan Committee, Tokyo. Ongoing since 1999, the project ‘European Eyes on Japan/Japan Today’, consists of inviting European photographers to make images of the various prefectures of Japan on the theme of contemporary life. This project is linked to the European Capital of Culture (Patras in Greece in 2006).The photographs Karin made in the prefecture Saga (Kyushu) are published in the book “European Eyes on Japan/Japan Today. Vol.8” together with the pictures of Pentti Sammallahti (Finland), Stratos Kalafatis (Greece) and Eleni Maligoura (Greece). The prints were exhibited in Japan in the museums of Saga and Fuskushima and in Flanders Center in Osaka (JP), in Greece in Athens and Thessaloniki, in Belgium in Croxhapox Ghent and De Mijlpaal Heusden-Zolder. Mikiko Kikuta is the curator of European Eyes on Japan/Japan today. Large format analogue camera.
