Canon Europe Sponsors Photographer Yoshi Shimizu for World Cultural Project

Photographer Yoshi Shimizu

Canon Europe is sponsoring a pioneering photography project from Japanese photographer, Yoshi Shimizu, to capture and protect some of the world’s most colorful cultural practices.

Using photographic equipment supplied by Canon, Shimizu will travel to some of the world’s most remote locations to observe and record gradually fading elements of cultural heritage, starting with the Indonesian Wayang shadow puppet theatre, an ancient form of story-telling renowned for its elaborate hand-carved puppets and complex musical styles.

Yoshi is a noted photographer currently based in France. He covers humanitarian aid activities as well as commercial and editorial assignments.
