[REMINDERS PHOTOGRAPHY STRONGHOLD]
Reminders Photography Stronghold is a curated membership gallery making multi-photographic activities possible (exhibitions, workshops, events, photobook room, photographers in residence, photography grants, publishing) and will inaugurate in September 2012 in downtown Tokyo.
The reminders (something or someone to make one remember) project was inaugurated in 2000 as a website and series of photo exhibitions. Reminders is a name that refers simultaneously to the photographer, the subject and the people who see it.
By simply reading a paper or watching the news on TV, people can consider
what is happening elsewhere in the world as somebody else's business. Even though problems remain unsolved, people forget about the issues very quickly. Or, if an issue does not attract attention in the first place, it is as if nothing happened at all.
The reminders project, however, aims to tell as many people as possible what really happens around the world. We show images taken by photojournalists who understand their subjects deeply and continue to cover issues through their own viewpoints. In addition to covering these stories, The Reminders Project creates slide shows, workshops and both national and international photo exhibitions.
The reminders project has no set agenda as to how and where we present the works created. We also have no requirements on photographers' nationalities or their experience. But we have two fundamental ideas: to introduce our stories widely and to seek various viewpoints. Our ideal goal is for this project’s stories to endure through time.
