Apr 09, 2022 at 12:00am ~ May 08, 2022 at 11:59pm

The 10th edition of the KYOTOGRAPHIE International Photography Festival will be held from April 9th – May 8th, 2022, presenting over 10 exhibitions in iconic Kyoto venues.

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. Now recognized as one of the worldʼs leading photography events, KYOTOGRAPHIE has attracted some 1,150,000 visitors from within Japan and overseas since 2013.

The KYOTOGRAPHIE International Photography Festival 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.

ONE is an opportunity to share our 10th year as the inspiration for reconnection, renewal, and revival.
