“These little non-moments you think are nothing mean a lot to me.”

Every time photographer Connie Tsang returns to her hometown to see her parents she’d get a bit sad — her parents were rapidly changing. In “Our Treasured Non-Moments” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 121, she speaks about the seemingly dull yet vibrant moments she captures of her parents as they transition from busily running their family restaurant, to easing into retirement, to slowly ageing before her eyes.

Our PechaKucha Night Vol. 121 (Wednesday, January 28 at SuperDeluxe) is just over a week away, so time to take a look at the lineup. Our first presenter of the year, as is becoming the tradition, will be Don Kratzer, who will introduce us to the art of kamishibai. We'll also welcome Toronto-based photographer Connie Tsang, who will talk about documenting family.

“I’ve taken portraits of over 5000 groups of parents and children over a 30-year period.”

Photographer Bruce Osborn is a long-time resident of Japan, and at a special Tokyo Designers Week 2014 edition of PKN Tokyo Vol. 118 here he describes "Oyako" (a Japanese word that signifies both parent and child): a multi-decade photography project that has consumed his life, and given him amazing insights into Japanese society, and the fantastically diverse family links that exists between parent and child.


For next week's Tokyo Designers Week edition of PechaKucha Night (on Wednesday, October 29), we're very happy to welcome photographer Bruce Osborn, who is set to talk about his fantastic "Oyako" project, that he has been producing over the years.

“It’s not staged, there’s no post-production. It’s what you see. As some of our most visceral and memorable experiences in life are about moments … I'm all about capturing these moments without any manipulation.”

Photographer Fumiaki Yamazaki discusses the art of his photographic work. In “The Truth of a Moment” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 117, he discusses the conceptual backdrop of his photography, which emphasises the capturing of movement, life, and the ethereal of a raw moment in time.


We always love seeing presentations by photographers, and at PechaKucha Night Vol. 117 (Wednesday, September 24) we welcome Fumiaki Yamazaki.

Creating new photo albums for families who lost theirs in natural disasters; this is Photohoku. 

Brian Scott Peterson and Yuko Yoshikawa go into depth on Photohoku: a photographic movement founded in response to the giant earthquake that shook Japan in 2011.

In "Photohoku 2.0" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 116 we see it's now a movement whereby photographers take photos of families affected by disasters, and give the photo albums back to the families themselves. It has grown into a global photo-giving, fundraising movement and has spread to the US, the Philippines, Australia, Korea, and many more. 

We're just over a week away from our Vol. 116 (on Wednesday, July 30) and starting today we'll be highlighting all of the presenters in the lineup. First up is photographer Brian Scott Peterson and Yuko Yoshikawa, who will be updating us on the latest activities of their Photohoku project (Photohoku on Facebook).
