Exhibition “Sumimasen – Japan through the eyes of an Estonian photographer”

This Japanese-themed photo exhibition presents works from our first open competition and photos by authors invited by the curators. It is remarkable how many Estonian photographers have pictures of Japan taken over the years, all from very different and sometimes surprising angles. All the showcased photographers represent a unique point of view of the distant country and the life of the people there.

The title of the exhibition, „Sumimasen”, means an apology. Still, the Japanese use this word to apologize and express gratitude, start a conversation, or when slightly confused.
