Special Photo Exhibition
絆 Kizuna 6: Resilience
Commemoration of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
The 絆Kizuna 6: Resilience Photo Exhibition is part of the programming to remember the victims of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan’s Tohoku region on March 11, 2011, presented by the Osaka Committee of Chicago Sister Cities International, the Consulate-General of Japan in Chicago, the Japan America Society of Chicago, Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) Chicago Office, and Japanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Chicago.
Curated by Alan Labb, Associate Professor, Photography Department, and Associate Provost of Educational Technology and Innovation at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the photos were selected from the past Kizuna exhibition archive as well as current photos taken by the Tohoku-based photographer Kiyotaka Shishido.
The Kizuna exhibitions have been contributed by many photographers including the leading Japanese business newspaper Nikkei’s Photo Department archive, “Memory: Things We Should Never Forget.” For more info, contact:
