Exhibition: Advertising Photography in Japan 2008

Monday, February 9, 2009

Attended the opening earlier this evening~ Just a short photo entry here, more details at the end of this post. ^^

Vice president of the Japan Advertising Photographers' Association introducing the images. This set is about a new washing machine from Sanyo that doesn't use water... This is the winning ad for the competition last year.

Shinkansen's came runner up~

Yamaha, I like this one~

Celebrating 70 years of Suntory whiskey. All these guys are pretty famous and 70, first on the left is the cameraman~ I wanna be in the ads I shoot next time tooo~

Omron. I thought this one was quite cool. It doesnt' feel very typically Japanese though~

14-sai no Haha (14 year-old mother). One of my favourites.

There is the annual as well, almost 300 pages. Says Basheer here, but I reckon Kino will stock it:

Thanks to Cwithe for pointing out, more images from the book can be found here.

From Japan Creative Centre's website:
