How do we see our city? What are the aspects of life in the city that touch your heart? Just like with people, we live in relationship with our city, and we hold emotional attachment to different moments, memories and places. Places hold memories for us. There are places that we have to visit and places we love to visit. This project focuses on how we love the city we are in. Can you find an image that shows an aspect of the city that you love? Come join us for a possibility to exhibit your memory of Tokyo in the live interactive component of this project.
This exhibition features an exchange of photos between Montreal, the Tokyo greater metropolitan area, incorporating cities which the organizers are personally connected to. Photographs sent from Tokyo are exhibited alongside works from Montreal, in sister exhibitions taking place both in Tokyo and in Montreal.

How do we see our city? How might we portray it to others?
Like with people, we live in relationship with our city. There are places that hold memories for us, places that we have to visit and places we love to visit. This project will focus on how we love the city we are in. Can you find an image that shows an aspect of the city that you love? You can look over photos that you have already taken for one that shows something you love about the city, or take your camera with you in your daily life, and when you see something that you love, take a picture! Each person's photos will be printed on a post card that will be mailed to Montreal for an exhibition at a popular art gallery in Concordia University, Montreal. We will be exchanging photos with a women's photography collective in Montreal, and in both cities we will hold exhibitions pairing the Tokyo photos with the Montreal photos. In this way we hope to explore love of place in two different places, and create a link between the two.
