Railways for Everyone Photo Exhibition

Flash Area.

Please note that this exhibition closed on Wednesday, May 27, 2009

With the impending holiday season and reflecting the popularity of railways in Japan, the "PHOTO IS" Gallery at FUJIFILM SQUARE is pleased to present the Railways for Everyone photo exhibition, which opens on April 29 and runs through to May 27, 2009. The photo exhibition will be accompanied by a variety of events, displays and sales of railway-related goods.

Since the first railway line opened in Japan in 1872, railways and trains have held a special place in the hearts of Japanese people. Despite the changing times and modes of transport, trains continue to play a vital role in transporting large numbers of people and freight on a daily basis. Along with their excellent safety and punctuality records, trains are also gaining much global attention for the minimal impact they exert on the natural environment.

Even today, trains are an indispensable part of all our everyday lives, and there are increasing numbers of people who are finding new ways of enjoying railways and trains from an increasingly diverse range of perspectives.

The photo exhibition "Railways for Everyone" features images of nostalgic steam locomotives, the recently-retired 0 series shinkansen bullet train, the blue train and a variety of other railway and train images that will bring back memories of the golden age of trains. In addition, the exhibition will also display some of the more unusual railway-related photos taken by professional photographers as they seek to convey their original perspectives on railways and trains. These include images of the "cat and dog stationmasters" that have proved immensely popular in Japan in recent years, along with photos of several curious, remote and out-of-the-way railway stations.

Along with exhibiting images taken with silver halide film for enhanced beauty and power of expression, there will also be displays and sales of railway-related goods that are bound to attract a wide range of visitors from children to adult enthusiasts. We are certain that there will be something for everyone at our Railways for Everyone photo exhibition.

A number of talk shows featuring exhibited photographers and several related events will take place throughout the duration of the exhibition at the "PHOTO IS" Gallery in FUJIFILM SQUARE, and we are delighted to extend a very cordial to you all to come and enjoy the Railways for Everyone photo exhibition, and the accompanying variety of events, displays and sales of railway-related goods.
