Statement
浅間国際フォトフェスティバル
PHOTO MIYOTAが始動します。

御代田町は長野県の東、浅間山の麓にある小さな町。
PHOTO MIYOTAは近い将来、
この町に設立される写真美術館を見据えてスタートする
国際的な写真のフェスティバルです。

国内外の優れた写真作品が展示されるのは、
雄大で清らかな御代田の自然と
そこに佇む建物の静謐な空間の中。
驚くほど巨大な写真や、立体に姿を変えた写真から
これが写真?と尋ねたくなるような不思議なものまで、
既成概念を覆すような出会いがあるかもしれません。

そこでは、常に世界と真摯に向き合う写真家たちが
雄弁なビジュアルの言葉で語りかけてきます。
子供も大人も彼らの声に耳を傾け、交流しながら、
その意味に思いをめぐらせ、楽しみ、語らい合う。
そこには、普段なかなか味わうことのできない
五感で感じる写真体験があります。

私たちは今の時代とそして未来に向けて
写真を通して何が伝えられるのかを、
この御代田町から皆様と共に考え、
問いかけていきたいと思います。

Asama International Photo Festival
PHOTO MIYOTA Begins

Miyota – a city located in eastern Nagano prefecture –
lies on a plateau in the foothills of Mount Asama.

PHOTO MIYOTA is an international photography festival,
started in anticipation of a new museum of photography
now nearing completion in the Miyota city limits.

The works of photography on display at the festival
– by first-rate artists both Japanese and from abroad –
take up residence within
Miyota’s tranquil spaces: the majestic, clarified world of nature that defines the landscape,
together with the structures situated within.

Spanning from astonishingly vast photographs to images redefined as solid,
three-dimensional figures, the festival is home to works unusual and uncanny
– guests may even find themselves wondering
if certain works are photographs at all. The fair presents new encounters, and with them,
opportunities for viewers to redefine their own preconceptions.

Our exhibiting artists are unrelenting in their desire to understand the world,
and PHOTO MIYOTA is where they speak to viewers
in an articulate, visual language of photography.
In turn, festival-comers young and old tune their ears to such voices
– delving into contemplation, delight, and discussion on the meanings gathered from them.
A photographic journey for all five senses,
PHOTO MIYOTA is an experience that transcends the ordinary.

It is our hope
that Miyota becomes a forum in which we can all consider the question –
In the present day and onward into the future,
what is it that photography can show us?
