Tokyo Dialogue 2022-2024
Tokyo Dialogue 2022-2024 is a project jointly organized by the T3 Photo Festival Tokyo, an outdoor urban photography festival held in the area east of Tokyo Station, and Toda Corporation. Each year for three years from 2022 to 2024, when the Toda Building will open, photographers and writers pair up to depict the changing image of the city through a dialogue of photographs and words in Kyobashi.
In recent years various urban redevelopment projects have been underway in the area east of Tokyo Station, among them Toda Corporation’s construction of the Toda Building in Kyobashi. Witnessing the ever-changing face of the city, and being involved in the construction industry which is at the forefront of this change, we at Toda Corporation aspired to capture and preserve moment-to-moment images of the cityscape in the midst of transformation. With the addition of perspectives and dialogue from the T3 Photo Festival Tokyo team, Tokyo Dialogue 2022-2024 was planned and organized.
Our hope is that through the works of artists who freely interpret and capture the city from various perspectives, including the invisible history of the land and the changing vista of the city and its people, this project will serve as a document of Tokyo that will endure into the future.
