The Nippon Foundation “The Power of Sports Photography” ExhibitionBeing held at Shibuya City Office until April 25

The Nippon Foundation’s The Power of Sports Photography exhibition

The Nippon Foundation and Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward are jointly holding The Power of Sports Photography exhibition until April 25. Roughly one and a half years before the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the exhibition aims to raise interest in the Games by giving a greater sense of the attractiveness of sports. The photographs being exhibited consist mainly of 74 photographs that were winners or selected from the SSF World Sports Photo Contest held by the Sasakawa Sports Foundation from 1995 to 2004, and from “GO Journal – A magazine to shake up the future with Para sports,” organized by The Nippon Foundation Paralympic Support Center with photographer and film director Mika Ninagawa as creative director.

The exhibition is themed on the universal language of sports, with photographs capturing the beauty of the body in motion, the instant a game is decided, and powerful human emotion, conveying messages that will appeal to visitors of all ages. We hope you will enjoy these photographs and feel the “power of sports.”
