Spring in Kyoto is particularly renowned for its cherry blossom. This year, from 15 April to 14 May, Kyoto is also highlighting the florescence of the distinctly Swiss tradition of peel-off coffee creamer lids. The 2023 Kyotographie international photography festival, entitled Border, invited Images Vevey to present a new version of the Swiss photographer Roger Eberhard’s ESCAPISM series in a truly exceptional setting.
Images Vevey and Kyotographie liaised to entirely redesign the scenography of this exhibition to adapt it to the Shimadai Gallery in a former sake and silk shop in downtown Kyoto.
Escapism is defined as a sort of imaginary journey, a form of evading reality, an “attitude that entails withdrawing from the world and from public life through flight or disillusionment.”
