10 Photographers capture the shape of time, 2020 and 2000

Photographers from seven different cultures including Japan, France, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, and the United States, responded to this call by photographer Ai Iwane.

A new photography magazine will be launched in which ten photographers, Ishiuchi Miyako, Antoine d'Agata, Shen Chao-Liang, Luo Dan, Seung Woo Back, ERIC, Ryuichi Ishikawa, Jinhee Kim, and Mandela Hudson, will juxtapose their photographs of the years 2000 and 2020.

In the year 2020 when the world experiences a drastic transition, "Decades" will deliver the time axis of "20 years" in the format of a magazine with photo stories and essays that condense the decades in each region.

 

Dear Friends

It is a pity that there haven't been many opportunities to see you recently.

I hope you are doing well.

Reacting to the changes in daily life,

I often wonder how you are,

as well as my friends living far away and overseas.

I remember there was another time when I felt close to you even though you were far away.

It was 20 years ago. At that time, too, everyone was saying that the world was going to change.

So this year, I decided to ask photographers who are living at this time what they had done this year, as well as in the year 2000.
