Pieces of the photographs by Deaf photographer

June 20, 2011

A non-profit organization A/A gallery will hold the 9th special exhibition on July 6 - August 12, 2011 in Tokyo to show the works titled 'Absolutely' of a Deaf photographer SAITO Harumichi (齋藤陽道).

Saito, a native of Tokyo, has won an excellent prize in 2009 and 2010 at the "Canon Photo New Century," a gateway to success for new photographers, many of whom currently are widely active one after another the inside and outside of the country.

Moreover, Saito is a rising photographer much expected, attracting attention, such as his new photograph collection scheduled for this autumn.

He is also a martial artist named "Hinomichi," belonging to a group of wrestlers with disabilities, "Dog Legs."

A/A gallery is an art center to bridge between artists with disabilities and society. "Able Art Japan," a non-profit parent organization, opened the gallery in April, 2010, after repairing the old building of the junior high school which was closed in Tokyo.
