We are halfway through 2017. But do you remember that it is the year of the Rooster? Like the Chinese zodiac, birds have been depicted as various emblems in the world since ancient times. Pigeons are the symbol of peace; owls wisdom; bluer birds happiness; and flying birds in the sky represent freedom. In mid-July PGI will present an exhibition on the animal: Summer Show “Birds in the Hand”. Various photographers joined the project, portraying birds differently. If you will be nearby, come and see their works. What will each bird tell?

Participating photographers:
Elijah Gowin / Olivia Parker / Penti Sammallahti / Takashi Arai / Yasuhiro Ishimoto / Yoshihiko Ito / Mitsugu Ohnishi / Kikuji Kawada / Michiko Kon / Yuji Hamada / Kozo Miyoshi / Kiyoshi Yagi / Hiroyuki Takenouchi / Ikko Narahara
