The KYOTOGRAPHIE International Photography Festival is held annually over four weeks in a style that is unique in Asia. Exhibitions are staged creatively in various traditional and contemporary settings with original scenography. The festival creates opportunities, bringing people together of
all ages, cultures, and backgrounds. Life inhabits and defends various borders.
These lines shape our existence and frame our experience; they protect, destroy, discriminate, and differentiate life in all forms. Human instinct pushes us to evolve, face new frontiers and create new territories. This innate desire to differentiate and break boundaries is a powerful force in nature and essential to survival. In 2023, they seek out these borders, identified as physical, temporary, transient, or transparent.
