Canon Europe is sponsoring a pioneering photography project from Japanese photographer, Yoshi Shimizu, to capture and protect some of the worldâ€™s most colorful cultural practices.
Using photographic equipment supplied by Canon, Shimizu will travel to some of the worldâ€™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.
