Memorial Photo Exhibition of the Works of David Coll Blanco

Just spreading the word out to those who know our friend David:


Memorial Photo Exhibition of the works of David Coll Blanco at FCCJ

Invitation to opening reception Dec. 10 (Tue.) from 19:00 - 21:00

When he died at age 39 in September, David Coll Blanco, the talented photographer from Barcelona, left behind many friends from a decade in Japan. David also left behind a body of work worth celebrating: a portfolio remarkable for its warm eye for the joy to be found, ironically, in the most unlikely places. 

From December 7 thru January 10, a selection of images from David’s years in Japan (2001-2011), and his explorations of Europe, Asia and the Americas, will be on display in the FCCJ Main Bar. The Club’s Masukomi sushi bar will feature images from Onjuku, the Chiba fishing port where he spent his final three years in Japan, living with his wife Mimi and infant daughter Maia (who is now five).

Organized and curated by his friends, with generous support from the Spanish Embassy, Desigual and Due Due, this exhibition is a celebration of warmth and light in the darkest month of the year. At the end of its run, the images will be available for interested collectors, with proceeds going to Maia. Posters and postcards will also be available at the FCCJ front desk.

Please join Mimi & Maia and friends for a reception to celebrate the opening in the Main Dining Room of the Foreign Correspondent’s Club of Japan (in Yurakucho, for directions: ) Dec. 10 from 19:00 to 21:00. Snacks and refreshments will be served free of charge.
