From 13 April to 12 June 2019, the Japanese city of Kyoto will revolve entirely around photography: eminent collections as well as contemporary works will be presented in both modern and historical venues as part of this year’s ‘Kyotographie’ festival. The international event is dedicated to showcasing a diverse spectrum of artistic approaches, with a conscious focus on exhibition formats that go beyond classic gallery presentations. Albert Watson, Benjamin Millepied, Weronika Gęsicka and Alfred Erhardt are among the many artists represented at this year’s event.
A particular highlight of the seventh festival edition is the ‘Magnum Live Lab/19’. For this project, acclaimed documentary photographers Paolo Pellegrin and Kosuke Okahara will capture their impressions of Kyoto over a period of ten days – allowing festival visitors to follow their production process. The images will then be selected in collaboration with a curator, edited, and exhibited at the Horikawa Oike Gallery.
