Nippon Suiseki Meihinten 2017 (57th)- photos by Jeff Amas

Post  Chris Cochrane on Sun Jun 25, 2017 10:11 pm

Jeff Amas sends photos of the 57th Nippon Suiseki Meihinten mounted at the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo earlier this month.  

Jeff Amas wrote:... this year people are taking more risks with the display in terms of colors and surfaces. In the books... (Japan Suiseki Exhibition books of exhibitions at Tokyo's Metropolitan Museum/CMC)... suiseki have just been placed against a neutral white background. While this allows us to just concentrate on the stone itself it doesn't show us how the owner may in fact present the stone. I think this actually quite an interesting talking point. Certainly the aesthetic response is quite different in each case.

Attached are 33 of 48 suiseki photos sent by Jeff.  An additional 15 photos will not readily load on IBC servers.

Thanks, Nellie.

Initial attempts to recover the 15 additional suiseki photos have failed, but I will continue to attempt posting them.
