Welcome to my little photos exhibition corner. Every month, I plan to present here online, a new exhibition or series of photos on a given theme related to Kyoto.
Your comments are welcome.
This year’s cherry blossoms season has started even earlier than last year. I’ve heard it started ten days earlier than usual! And this year is a special one for the planet. Because of the current pandemic, there are very few people around Kyoto. But we are lucky to not have many confirmed cases of this terrible virus and the cherries are blooming all around.
Here’s a series of recent photos taken around the city over the second half of March.
The plum trees are the first ones to delight us with their beautiful white, pink and red flowers that smell so well. These blossoms as early as February. Here are a few photos captured around Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, Jonangu Shrine and a special garden in Mie prefecture, near Kyoto.
January 15th, 2020. I am currently not in Japan and I have just heard about Maiko Kimisaki retirement! I had the pleasure and privilege of four different photoshoots with maiko Kimisaki. I’m presenting here what I think are the best images I was able to capture of her.
The following photos were made during three public photoshoots organized in Kyoto during the Fall (2018 and 2019). The theme is always “Maiko & Momiji”. The photos were taken at the Chishakuin Temple, the National Museum and the Shôsei-en Garden, with groups of five geimaiko.
