Point Shoot: Museum Volkenkunde

17 July 2017

Dear friend,

Welcome to my Photo series #PointShoot. I love capturing the ordinary moments and special times with my camera, looking at our life through a lens gives me a clearer focus.

We spent a fascinating Saturday afternoon at the museum Volkenkunde in Leiden at the Cool Japan exhibition. 

Pokémon, Hello Kitty, robots and samurai Рall international icons of Japanese visual culture. Japan is known for its ancient traditions, and yet it is also hip and happening, with occasional extravagant visual excesses. A major exhibition entitled COOL JAPAN: Worldwide Fascination in Focus ... highlights the popularity of contemporary Japan, and places it in a historical context.
The boys didn't need any persuading to visit the museum with the promise of some Pokemon but it was actually so much more and we discovered Samurai, Buddhas, Swords, Dragon masks, Mangas and Hello Kitty. They even got to play computer games too!

Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering - because you can't take it in all at once - Audrey Hepburn

Point Shoot was previously Friday Focus.
