Transcendence
brings together the works of six Japanese female photographers exploring the multiple languages of photography to turn it into a tool for assertion and resilience: Hosokura Mayumi, Iwane Ai, Okabe Momo, Suzuki Mayumi, Tonomura Hideka and Yoshida Tamaki. From intimate portraits to evocative landscapes and poetic experimentations, they express their personal or collective experience, echoing the complexity and evolution of contemporary Japanese society.

Inspired by 10/10 Celebrating Contemporary Japanese Women Photographers, an exhibition presented in 2022 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of KYOTOGRAPHIE, Transcendence continues to highlight the experience of some of these photographers in an homage to the power of vulnerability, the beauty of diversity, and the unyielding spirit of women who dare to rewrite their story and History through the power of photography.

Curators: Lucille Reyboz and Nakanishi Yusuke.

Exhibition coproduced by SIGMA.
With support from Kering | Women In Motion.
