Journey. One thousand years. The Six Ancient Kilns”

The Six Ancient Kilns is a collective term that refers to Japan's six distinguished kilns of Echizen, Seto, Tokoname, Shigaraki, Tamba and Bizen. These kilns have produced pottery from medieval times to the present day. The term was coined by a historic ceramics scholar Fujio Koyama in 1948. And "The Six Kilns" was designated as Japan Heriage Sites in 2017. English translation of its official website and papers by SW_.

Photography Is Magic draws together current ideas about the use of photography as an invaluable medium in the contemporary art world. Edited and with an essay by leading photography writer and curator Charlotte Cotton, this critical publication surveys the work of a diverse group of artists, many working at the borders of the "art world" and the "photography world," all of whom are engaged with experimental ideas concerning photographic practice and its place in a shifting photographic landscape being reshaped by digital techniques.
