The theme of this year, the 7th edition of the festival so far, is VIBE. The Co-funders and Directors of KYOTOGRAPHIE describe a vibe as:  “A distinctive emotional atmosphere, something sensed intuitively and deeply connected to our mood. Vibes rush over you when you meet a person, confront a memory or event, visit a place, hear a piece of music, or remember a time. These invisible waves, both positive and negative alter our experience, they either separate us or connect us.”

Albert Watson’s exhibition is presented by BMW Japan, if you’re in the area or a big Albert Watson fan; make sure to check it out.
