Nippon América 日本アメリカ(Barranquilla)
Photographs by Taeko Nomiya, Marcio Takeda and Luis Okamoto
Show curated by Alantl Molina
Carnaval Internacional de las Artes de Barranquilla, February 6-9, 2020.
The Nippon America 日本アメリカ photo exhibition takes a look at Japan through the eyes of three Latin American Nikkei photographers: the Brazilian Marcio Takeda, the Peruvian Luis Okamoto and the Mexican Taeko Nomiya.
The three photographers travelled to Tokyo in August 2019 to take the pictures of the exhibition. These images show the country they discovered following clues from their own family histories.
The show premiered in Tokyo on September 2019. It will be part of the activities of the Barranquilla Arts Carnival in February 2020 and it will be coming to Mexico City's Museo Nacional de las Culturas del Mundo in the second quarter of 2020.
