Selection from the Young Portfolio Acquisitions

KIYOSATO MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTS (K’MoPA) opened in Yamanashi Prefecture in 1995 and has since focused much of its activity on its project, “Photographs by the Next Generation: Young Portfolio.”

This is a cultural program aimed at helping the youth of the world through photography, to present young people with a challenge, to pass on the fundamentals of photography itself and to open up a future for young people and photography.

The Museum invites young people (up to the age of 35) to submit works. It acquires and exhibits the best – presenting young people’s talent and true worth to the world.

Over the last 20 years, it has received a total of 112,259 works by 9,466 people from 74 countries, with 5,460 works acquired for the collection. This FCCJ exhibition consists of photos from some of the Japanese photographers among the selected.

All the works acquired can be viewed on the Museum’s website:

Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts is supported by a grant from the Shinnyo-en Foundation.
