The Days in Japan
Days Japan magazine along with Waseda University are holding a festival of photojournalism from today until December 5th. There will be a special slideshow of photojournalism images taken by foreign residents in Japan showing on the 26th.
I don`t know who exactly is showing pictures there, I know I`m not having somehow missed the deadline for the call for images but I do know that the supremely talent James Whitlow Delano will have a collection of images of Japan`s homeless on show. Homeless pictures are almost a cliche of photojournalism, and the ironic jucstapostion of Japan`s great invisible homelessness problem against the usual and equally stereotypical images of modern metropolises and conspicuous wealth is hard to do originally, but knowing James I`m sure his photos will be stark and surprising; and that makes this event, essential viewing. I only hope I can attend.
Anyway go along to the facebook page here and sign up if you can make it or go and see the exhibition anytime.
Ckiches aside I also have stock images of Japan’s homeless at my archive here:
