Overview participating exhibitions
Terra Cognita - Untamed
One of the central events each spring in Japan is hanami, the brief period when the cherry trees blossom. Katsumi Omori has captured that event for the last decade. It was obvious that in the spring of 2011, after the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear incident, he would go from Tokyo in the direction of the disaster-struck Fukushima in search of the blossoms. His images contain suggestions of things that people can not see, but which ares nonetheless present: anxiety, radiation and hope for the future.
Miti Ruangkritya (Thailand, 1981) studied photojournalism at the University of Westminster in England, after which he became an assistant to the Magnum photographer Antoine d’Agata. In 2011 and 2012 he was honoured with the Magenta Flash Forward – Emerging Photographers award, and in 2012 also received the Prix de la Photographie. He lives and works in Bangkok.
