Of any collectible artwork, photographs are the produced through methods most familiar to the general public. Due to this feature of the medium, photography has become indispensable for the private and public expression, recording, sharing, communication, and passing on of a variety of “content” and the boundaries between the producers and receivers of photographic expression have also become blurred.

At the same time, the history of art photography began with documentation and portraiture and the denial of Pictorialism, and it is also the history of artists who have continually explored the uniqueness of the medium for art production and representation. As photographs came to be avidly collected as artworks, the medium created some of the most important trends in modern art history and its value has appreciated accordingly. The collectors of photographs and photo books have confirmed the concepts of not only art photography, but also the “punctum” that draws viewers to it, as facts.


The 5th daikanyama photo fair will present its “Collection of Artists” exhibition to reconsider the relations between photographic works, artists and viewers. The exhibition will feature photographic works that were collected by artists, designers and photographers to examine the attraction of photographs through eyes that confront the expressive act daily.

We hope that this exhibition, which comprises works carefully selected, and filtered, through highly sophisticated sensibilities, will promote conversations between artists and viewers regarding the creative act and help fine-art photography and photographic expression grow and evolve.
