Everyday Kamakura. An ancient capital of Japan and stronghold for the Shogunate, Kamakura was a center of political, economic and cultural power that rivaled Kyoto. MatsuRi’s photography collection about the region and its population has won multiple international awards. Each image captures the richness and color of the contemporary historic metropolis, best known for its giant bronze buddha Daibutsu. The “slice of life” presentation, a hallmark style of MatsuRi, offers a new depth to the environments and people living in this land. These pictures also present an original artistic and realistic view that focuses on the balance between two conflicting worlds, centuries of tradition and an ultra-modern transition.
