Congratulations to PhotoCentral Japan
In May 2001, Mieko and Hiroshi Tamura took the excitement, community and vision of PhotoCentral back to their native Japan. PhotoCentral Japan had its first exhibition featuring the work of many local photographers. Watch here for more information on this new program that, like PhotoCentral USA supports photographers and photographic education in the community.
