January in Japan
January in Japan — the tenth personal exhibition of traveler and photographer Viktor Pinchuk, were held at the Central Museum of Taurida (Simferopol). The opening took place on October 7, 2013. The exposition, which included 45 works, introduced connoisseurs of photographic art and representatives of the press who were present at the ceremony to the sights of islands Shikoku, Honshu and Enoshima, which the author managed to visit during the short period of validity of visa.
The two-week trip took place in the "hobo tour" format. In order to collect photographic material, crimean thrill-seeker traveled through winter Japan using the kiseru method; he slept on technical floors of buildings, under the elevator of the student dormitory, in a cemetery, even in a police station, and once, by coincidence, stayed overnight at home of local TV cameraman. The result was worth the effort: in addition to imported photographic collection, the author published a series of articles about the country, which never ceases to amaze us today, as it did in past centuries. Later a brochure "Japan for free" created in the genre of travel notes was came out.
