Let’s make a great artwork and share it with the world.
SAMURAI FOTO is an organization which has been established for the purpose of widely recognizing Japanese photographers around the world as being high quality artworks. To achieve the purpose, we have been working hard to make artworks for the photo exhibitions and have deepened exchanges with the world since 2012. We also bring up photographers who can be active internationally. Furthermore, we have joined a lot of activities in foreign countries aggressively such as photo festivals and photo auctions. We have got photo reviews as well. We have made a big achievement.
Our next goal is to build a cultural bridge between people in the world through the art photographs. As civilization and science have developed, the world has become convenient. People can travel easily and a speed of information communication gets faster remarkably. However, there are still many problems in this chaotic world. We have no clue how to solve them so far. What we need is to respect other people and understand other cultures. We believe that the art photography will fulfil the important role as a means of deepening links between people around the world.
Our group is still small though, we believe the expressive power of art photo. We respect each photographer’s individuality and work hard day by day. By connecting with people in the world, we try to contribute to create a global well-being. If you are interested in fine art photography, why don’t you join us and share it with the world? We are waiting for you!
Aiming for the world contribution with photographs
SAMURAI FOTO has a workshop every month. We invite experts of fine art and photographers who are active internationally. With them, we learn and talk about fine art photography. We have joined aggressively major photo exhibitions and got portfolio reviews in foreign countries such as Arles and Huston. Our activities help members of SAMURAI FOTO in order to gain world recognition as a photographer.
Little by little, our activities show successful results. Some of the members were invited to International Photo Festival and introduced in foreign media. Also, they attended a photo exhibition in overseas museum and some of their art works were purchased. When we are in foreign countries, we have tried to develop relationships with very important people such as curators of Photo museum in the U.S, organizers of International Photo Festival and many famous Photographic Artists.
We are doing various photographic activities, and joining an auction in the museum in the U.S was a great success. We are proud that our proceeds of the auction became some help for the museum activities. Repairing corrupted pictures is also one of our activities. The social contribution activities like these are SAMURAI FOTO’s final goal.
As the title says, we aim for the world contribution with photographs. We will stay active so that many Japanese photographers can have a worldwide reputation for their art works.
