Curator of Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Japan (Kasahara Michiko) - Taiwan Curator (Wu Jiabao)
Five female Japanese photographers each finds her own way to come to terms with oneself and drifts between personal realities and the crude reality of the world - a reflection of the state of mind of the younger generation of Japan today. Eight Korean photographers showcase the unique "literariness" in contemporary Korean photography - paradoxical ideas, poetic but contradictory semiotics, and sometimes fictional literary style, leading the audience to contemplate upon the truth underlying the apparent truths.
