Tokyo Tsukiji Exhibition

Museo d'Arte Orientale Edoardo Chiossone, Genova 22/02/2019

From 22 February to 5 May, Tokyo Tsukiji will be exhibiting at “Museo d’Arte Orientale Edoardo Chiossone in Genova”.
Tokyo Tsukiji is the reportage I’ve made about the largest fish market in the world.


The exhibition, edited by Aurora Canepari, director of the “Museo d’Arte Orientale Edoardo Chiossone” and Benedetta Donato, editorial project editor, shows 28 selected photographs which depict a real story through images related to one of the most iconic places in Japan’s capital city. This place is even considered holy by Japanese restaurateurs because they saw how the celebrity of the fish market was growth so that it became one of the most tourist attraction point of Tokyo, today unfortunately closed.
The aim of the exhibition is to make photography interact with the most important oriental art collection in Italy and one of the most important of Europe. Culture and tradition, coming from different and apparently distant periods, meet, proposing a new visual journey from the ancient to the contemporary.
