Photojournalism Exhibition

A visitor looks at photos from the DAYS Japan annual photojournalism awards winners' exhibition in Shinjuku, Tokyo. The exhibition runs until May 18th 2011, before moving onto various other venues in Japan.  Robert Gilhooly Photo

 

 

Shameless plug, I know, but this doesn’t happen every day. A few of my photos are on display at the Konica-Minolta Gallery in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Please drop by if you are in the area … admission is free.

Some of the photographers on display are Days Photojournalism Awards first prize winner Jan Dago and Adam Dean, among other award-winning snappers. I was awarded with a prize by special jury for my suicide forest photos, three of which are on display in the gallery sandwiched between those depicting the Pakistan floods by Andrees Latif and others about maternal mortality in Sierra Leone by Jean Chung. I really don’t mind rubbing shoulders with those two.

A gallery of the suicide forest photos can be found here. Some people might find a few of these shots a little disturbing.

Survivors tales

Above slideshow shows some of the survivors of the quake and tsunamis in the Tohoku region of Japan. The Guardian’s Justin McCurry put together a collection of short stories of some of these survivors which was used by the paper as a two-page spread in the G2 section.
