This Biennial Photographic Exhibition is one of the cornerstones of the Sister City relationship.
The Setagaya Photo Competition is open to all amateur photographers who live or work in Setagaya or Kawabu in Gunma (Setagaya’s internal sister city). The theme of the competition was open and photographers could enter photos from around the world. The top 37 photos from this competition are exhibited here and show the breadth of talent of the amateur Japanese photographers in Setagaya and Bunbury will send a reciprocal exhibition of photos in late 2019 to be exhibited at the Setagaya Art Museum.
Setagaya - The City of Setagaya is located within the Tokyo metropolitan region and is one of the 23 large urban wards that make up Tokyo. With a population of 837,000, Setagaya is predominantly a residential area steeped in cultural tradition with large areas set aside for parklands and public recreation. Indeed, Setagaya is said to have the best natural environment in Tokyo with 23% of city land devoted to this purpose. The city Is also recognised as one of Japan’s leading business and cultural centres, with wholesaling, retailing and restaurants making up half of the businesses in an area rich with cultural and sporting facilities such as the Setagaya Art Museum and Komazawa Olympic Park.
