Julie Glassberg: Tokyo International Photography Competition
As a way of bridging the gap between the New York and Tokyo photography scenes, galleries in both cities have teamed up to create the Tokyo International Photography Competition.
”The Tokyo International Photography Competition (TIPC) was created to provide an opportunity for photographers living or working in the USA and Japan to present their artistic visions beyond their country’s borders and open up the possibilities for cross-pollination and cross-border collaborations. The launching of TIPC is the first step of a three-year plan to launch an international photography festival in Tokyo, starting in 2015.”
YG9 Julie Glassberg was selected by the competition’s jury as one of eight winning photographers. An exhibition of their work is currently on display in the Tokyo Institute of Photography, and the sister event in New York opens today at United Photo Industries in Brooklyn.
