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. It is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the theme ‘ONE’. One is everything and everything is One – this saying is rooted in Japan’s Buddhist teachings and expresses the idea that each speck of dust (the individual) represents the universe (the whole), and the universe is a magnificent organic combination of the individual and the whole. Every speck is relevant and meaningful in this whole; connected and existing as ‘One’. In 2022, KYOTOGRAPHIE wants to celebrate each person’s unique existence and our collective diversity.
