Event contents

―Town Higashikawa-cho 30 years memory of photograph―

Children of bicycle-drawn cart play. 2, Nishi-8-gokita. (1949) (c) hi*yasuumigieimon
hi*yasuumigieimon is born as Azumakawa of Hokkaido in 1914 and, at the age of 14 years old, begins to take photograph triggered by camera having been presented by cousin. We took camera so that we lived all the time in Higashikawa-cho for 94 years before dying except 3 degrees draft all over the wartime, and hi*ya said in the government office duty times when we worked for 44 years saying "we have not forgotten lunch box and camera" to go where and photographed every thing of surroundings with change of Higashikawacho.

You title this exhibition saying "my diary was camera." and see work which arrested Azumagawa of Showa photographed from about 1928 when hi*ya had camera in its hand through the 50s and people living there.
We are projected with warm look that snap and souvenir picture of casual family, parting with family of taking the field soldier, people who, no, work on a farm who are rope, record of natural disaster, state that, in addition, Higashikawacho is cleared and cultivated, and develops turn to subject carefully. It continued photographing for joy above all to have you please with hi*ya when you gave photograph which camera, tool called photograph merely took interestingly to person. And, as for it, own diary substituted.

Higashikawa-cho where hi*ya lived in throughout the life performed "town declaration of photograph" for the making of rich culture garden city in 1985. "Higashikawacho international photograph Festival" is held every year in summer from 1985 to realize idea that it is said and invites 30 years this year to make town which meeting point was full of by photograph. We perform "photograph culture capital declaration" for the purpose of tying photograph and world people as center of photograph culture on reaching the turning point and continue carrying out various activities to accomplish further development as "town of photograph" Higashikawacho. Work which arrested people who lived on the 17th festival with change of the times and local characteristic in Azumagawa in 2001 was appreciated, and hi*ya won prize in particular with one accord. Furthermore, hi*yasuumigieimonsho to give writer who remembered his achievements from the 26th in 2010, and added to conventional prize, and local, contributed through photograph newly was founded.

When we loved people who spent family there in town where oneself was born and raised deeply and turned up album which we continued taking to spell diary, it was valuable document projected the history of Showa that not only life record but also one town traced there scrupulously. Is it not work speaking to us some other time what record-related power that the media photograph has is?
