Tokyo-Ga: Tokyo-Ga created an extensive photographic project: describing Tokyo Scapes by 100 Photographers. Tokyo reacts quickly to changes of the times; as the largest and most recognizable city in Japan it has become a site of unity. The idea for Tokyo-Ga originated as an internal response to the devastating natural disasters that occurred in Japan in 2011. These events brought an awareness of the global connectedness of not just Japanese people, but all of humanity.
