Hello, this is Hiro. Today I am writing to you about Peter Granser’s talk event which took place yesterday at konya2023.
He explained carefully how his work and mind have changed from 2000 to 2012. It was very nice to hear about the happy things and the harsh things of being a photographer, and how the photographic medium has changed in this years. After listening to all this ideas, I feel like I can enjoy Peter’s work in Itoshima from a new angle, and understand it better. I can’t wait for his exhibition to open.
Also, I was happy to see many young people coming to listen to Peter. Of course one reason is the event taking place downtown in Tenjin. Peter, too, was very happy that so many people came. I would like to give our artists in residence more chances to introduce their work to people in the city.
I appreciate this chance Mr. Noda and Mr. Miyamoto gave us, and I would like to say thank you to everyone who came!
