“A View of Daily Life,” a photo exhibit by The Associated Press, will open this fall on Awashima Island in the city of Mitoyo, Japan.
The exhibit, which opens Oct. 1, 2014, comprises 56 striking AP images from 31 different countries giving visitors a unique view of everyday life around the globe. It is free of charge and will run through Dec. 14, 2014, at the former National Sailor School on the island, which is part of Seto Inland Sea National Park.
The exhibit, in association with AFLO and Mitsubishi, was displayed at the Gyoko-dori Underground Gallery in Tokyo earlier this year. It shows aspects of daily life in culture, festivals, fashion, children, food and animals. AP, AFLO and Mitsubishi donated all the panels for the event, which include personal comments from the photographers.
AP has a strong tradition of excellence in photojournalism. Throughout its history, AP has won numerous awards, including 31 Pulitzer Prizes for photography, most recently in 2013 for coverage of the civil war in Syria.
