In Samarkand there was a presentation of Jin Akino’s photo album
In the gallery of Tillya-Kari madrassah of the Registan ensemble there was a presentation of a new photo album «Uzbekistan: moments of traditional culture» by the Japanese master of photography Jin Akino. Museum workers, artists, journalists, local history experts, employees of the Department of Tourism and representatives of public organisations came to the meeting with the guest from the Land of the Rising Sun. The event was held as part of the «Samarqandiana» encyclopedic project to mark the International Decade for the Rapprochement of Cultures. From the pages of his photo album, Jin Akino invites readers to a dialogue through a small epigraph: «History, tradition and our daily lives are a series of unique moments that often pass us by, erased from memory… Just think about how many of these moments are irrevocably lost for us?».
