the event

A simple idea that brought together 29 photographers, 72 gallery exhibits, and over 300 random images of contemporary life in and around the streets of Osaka, Japan

Back in the beginning of November 2004 the Kameraoke organizers, John Russell and Danyk Amyot, asked the Kansai public a few simple questions: Are you a bit of a voyeur? Like taking photos? Wanna have some fun? The response was a resounding 'YES!' and the result was an inspired exhibition of photographs. Over one hundred people came to the November 28th event, held at Calibre Cafe in Shinsaibashi

The rules were simple - follow a list of images to photograph and come together for a one night exhibition. However, there was a catch - the photographs could only be taken using disposable cameras

KAMERAOKE IN THE NEWS

Kameraoke 2.0 - The Digital Edition comprises images from 31 photographers, including 64 gallery prints and over 600 small images

The same concept remained, but as the name suggests Kameraoke 2.0 required participants to use digital cameras to capture images rather than disposable cameras. After all, most of us have a digi of some kind - why not put them to good use. This also helped to open up a lot of photographic opportunities that may have been missed the first time round

The exhibition was on display at Tin's Hall in Tennoji from May 15th - 29th, 2005.

Once again it was a great success. The opening night was packed and, over the two weeks of the exhibition, several thousand people bore witness to a fascinating display of photographic intrigue

Fundraising on the opening night helped to support a local non-profit organization AGS, which provides support for children who are in Hospital care throughout the Kansai area

We would like to express our gratitude to everyone who came in early on Sunday to help us get set up. We would also like to thank all of the contributing photographers who made it possible
