For those that couldn't make it, a video of Kyoto Dreams.
Some images from the recent exhibition.
A huge thrill that the great photographer Dorothy Bohm visited the Kyoto Dreams exhibition. She is known for her portraiture, street photography, early adoption of colour, and photography of London and Paris and is considered one of the doyennes of British photography.
This is the main wall at Burgh House, Hampstead, London with some of Kyoto Dreams exhibited.
Chizuko and I at the opening of 'Kyoto Dreams' at Burgh House, Hampstead on 6 July 2016. It runs until July 24 on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays when we will be present.
At the Kyoto Dreams Private View at Burgh House on 6 July, Chizuko Kimura points out to Hiroko Tanaka and Hisako Fukushige details about the images and how they were taken.
All visitors to the exhibition will be entitled to a 20% discount on prints purchased.

We'll be setting the exhibition up a week from today, so much to do! I don't know how this happened, some more internet wizardry I expect!
As we prepare for the 6 July opening of 'Kyoto Dreams', a nice review of Bridges that Suzanne Perrin and myself have recently published in the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan magazine ACUMEN https://bccjacumen.com/a-slice-of-social-history/ …
No, the exhibition is not in Osaka but London, more fun with internet downloads in the run up to our big 2016 event!
The London exhibition is not long now, and this didn't happen but is a bit of fun!
At Daiwa Anglo-Japanese House in London last night Suzanne Perrin and I launched the Bridges book
The Bridges book launch is now confirmed for 3 May at Daiwa House in London.
The book may be purchased here for delivery worldwide;
I have been collaborating on a book for some time with Suzanne Perrin, Bridges and we will be having a Book Launch at Daiwa Japan House on Tuesday 3rd May.
We are very pleased to have secured the best venue in London and are very grateful to the people involved for giving us this opportunity to put Bridges on the literary market.
We are busy setting up the next exhibition in July which will be at Burgh House in Hampstead, London, a beautiful Queen Anne-era gem steeped in over 300 years of history. It was a private residence for much of its life, but it is now open to the public four days a week as an independent charitable trust for arts, heritage and the community.
Kyoto Photo Gallery is delighted to be showing there in July.
There are several ballet images here on the KPG website that have all been taken of rehearsals and performances of the Mitsuko Inao Ballet School in Kyoto.
This short video is them rehearsing 'Alice in Wonderland' at the company's school prior to a performance at Biwako Hall, Otsu a few days later.
KPG had six images on show at a Kay Me pop-up shop event by leading Japanese fashion designer Junko Kemi at 90 Piccadilly, London W1, just 100 metres from the Embassy of Japan. Junko has her own shop in Ginza, Tokyo
