The photography exhibition “行ける工場夜景展 (Ikeru Kojyo Yakei-ten, Night Views of Accessible Factories)” will be held in Asakusa of Tokyo from September 18 until September 27, 2015.
Factories have been a trending spot to visit in recent years. The nighttime makes these factories especially beautiful, and astonishes viewers with its magnificent sight.
“Night Views of Accessible Factories” is a joint photography exhibition featuring such majestic views. The team chose photos of locations that one can actually visit. They would like viewers to see the factories in real life as well, so all exhibitions include access information as well.
The exhibition will feature a total of around 11 artists, including the pioneer of nighttime factories, Mori Daisuke, along with Nawate Masato of night view information site “yakei.jp” and Okura Hiroshi, the supervisor of photo book “Kojo Yakei.” Over 200 items, including unreleased photographs, will be on exhibit.
The museum will sell a guidebook with detailed information of the photographers and factories, and the first 2,000 attendees will receive an original postcard.
In the special booth, there will be an installation art piece by Mori Daisuke using a projector. It is scheduled to show flare stacks lit in the night sky, filmed by drones.
