Photo Zoo - Super Close Ups of Animals in the Wild

Flash Area.

Please note that this exhibition closed on Wednesday, August 26, 2009

The PHOTO IS gallery, on the first floor of FUJIFILM SQUARE, is pleased to present Photo Zoo -- Super Close Ups of Animals in the Wild, a photo exhibition featuring several the world's wildest and most elusive animals in their natural habitats. The exhibition, which runs from July 31 to August 26, 2009, has been especially planned to coincide with Japanese school and office summer holidays to allow families to come along and marvel at the animals on display.

The exhibition features images of a wide array of animals that have captured the imaginations of generations of people, and still today remain firm favorites for young and old alike. Going along to a zoo or safari park to view the animals can sometimes be a hit or miss experience: there may often be a moat or fencing around the animal enclosure that impedes the view; the animals are sometimes reluctant to show themselves to the waiting visitors; and then there are even times when the animals come a little too close for comfort. For those who have always wanted to see the animals at close range, we have come up with the optimal solution at FUJIFILM SQUARE.

The photos on display have been taken by professional photographers working for National Geographic, who have captured their images using silver halide film to further enhance the clarity and power of the photographic expression they seek. The images contain several super close up shots of animals that are rarely seen from such close distances. In addition to rare moments in the lives of animals that can only be seen in photos and enlarged photos of some of the world's best-loved animals, the exhibition also features animal footprints, audios of the cries and roars of various animals and an animal quiz.

The exhibition also contains a dedicated corner for visitors to learn more about the natural environment and biodiversity ahead of next year's COP10 international conference on biodiversity to be held in Nagoya, and other national environmental and ecological projects that the government of Japan is currently undertaking.
We are delighted to extend a very cordial welcome to one and all to come along to the FUJIFILM SQUARE for an unforgettable animal photo experience. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, we will be holding a variety of animal-related events to ensure fun for the whole family.
