Commemorating the exhibition “Dreaming of Life: With Ukraine”
Photowalk by Shinya B

“Photowalk” is an event that people who like to take pictures gather with their cameras and iPhones to walk around and take pictures.

Before the photowalk, there will be a 10-minute demonstration of the Shinya B’s composition method (tricolor and/or trisection).

We will meet up at Temple University, where Shinya B belongs, and walk to Gallery TOM, where the exhibition “Dreaming of Life: With Ukraine” is currently held, taking photos as you like, and sharing them on SNS.

Everyone is welcome to participate.
