Back from Japan!
Hello everyone! I wanted to send along an update on the project, now that my mind has successfully re-entered Pacific Standard Time (my body returned a few days ago, but such is travel life).
First, it was a safe, challenging and inspiring trip. Japan is a fantastic place to travel and there is so much to see. Even though I was there for 2 weeks, I know I didn't do much more than scratch the surface. There were so many trails, sights and places to photograph that I could hardly contain myself. Fortunately, the Aikido Archive Project was much more focused and after a few days of inquiry, we were able to gain access to the promised materials.
We found many binders full of photographs, some negatives, and many slides. It was exciting to have more materials that I could possibly deal with. We had to prioritize our time and start with the oldest materials, then working forwards with the little extra time we had.
Now that Im back, Im just starting to go over what we were able to scan and save, and evaluating the time it will take to bring the images back to life and preserve them for the future. Its a big job, but Im excited to be involved and so grateful for all of your support in making it happen.
I will keep you updated as the project moves forward, and will be contacting you in the next few weeks with a selection of my Japan photographs for you to select from for your Reward prints.
Thank you again!
p.s. This photo was taken at the Kumano Nachi Taisha Grand Shrine.
