About the workshop
"Mono no aware" — can best be translated as "an empathy toward the beauty of the things", or "a sensitivity to ephemera". The flowers of blossoming sakura are extremely beautiful, but the beauty lasts for only few days a year. This is why, the flower viewing – hanami – is a celebration, the one, which is probably the most important for the Japanese.
Blossoming of sakura is, perhaps, the most precise metaphor of the Japanese culture. And you will have a chance to touch and see it with your own eyes.
This trip is a group art project, led by Pavel Kosenko and Elena Aframova, who lives in Tokyo and is specialized on the studies of the cultural life of Japan. At the same time, this is a travel experience, a chance to meet friends, a practical workshop in street ad genre photography, and a join work on an art project. As a result a photography book will be published, and distributed to all the participants.
