Takafumi Kojo photo exhibition of “Tsunaguoto Tsumuguhito” is held at Kyoto Museum of Photography Gallery Japanesque 2F“Hana” From Tue., Mar 20 to Sun., Mar 25 2018.

Since 1996 to 2008, I covered overseas Professional Major Sports. Emotional sports scenes are very dramatic for me, so I was fascinated by the attractiveness of sports. But one day, I realized I had not known anything about my country's history and culture.
In 2008, I met “Ichihime-Gagaku-Kai”, which is a Gagaku orchestra in Kyoto, Japan. I was attracted by the sounds and performances they played. Almost Japanese citizens are limited with the opportunities to see and like Gagaku actually. So after a while, I began to visit Kyoto to take photographs of them.
It is very difficult to protect and convey history and culture. Compared with the history of a thousand years, the time I watched was very short. However, I would be happy if their activities were widely passed down by recording in the photographs.
Thank you for coming to this exhibition. Please enjoy your stay in Japan.
