This is one of my shots from Bucharest in the ‘This Day of Change’ exhibition.
In January I had the privilege of participating in a group assignment organized by Courrier Japon that sent 132 photographers from around the world out to capture life on Barack Obama’s inauguration day. Two of my images are now online with more soon to follow and a book with everyone’s work is due to be published on 25 April. An English companion version will be published later in May. There is a simultaneous exhibition in Japan with about 50 photographs from the book and one of them happens to be mine. The location is the pedestrian deck at Shinjuku’s Takashimaya Department Store’s second floor. Access: Shinjuku station, 2 minutes from Shin-Minamiguchi exit. The work of other photographers on the project can be seen here.
I will be one of 100 photographers gathered worldwide tomorrow by Courrier Japon to shoot pictures around the theme of ‘hope’ on Barack Obama’s inauguration day. My photos along with all the other work will appear in the February issue of the magazine as well as in a book. The list of photographers is impressive including some of my fellow Anzenberger friends and a few from Magnum, VII and VU as well as many other top shooters.
