The Toowoomba-Takatsuki Photographic Exchange began in 2006, when Toowoomba hosted the 15th Anniversary celebration of its relationship with Sister City Takatsuki, Japan. The Takatsuki K?eisha Photograph Association curated an exhibition to commemorate the event, which was displayed in Toowoomba City Hall.
This initial exhibition prompted a yearly photographic exchange, which has become part of Toowoomba’s Sister City programs with Takatsuki, fostering a cultural and artistic dialogue that has deepened the relationship between the two cities. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Sister City relationship, the exhibition was extended to also include a Sister City Photographic Competition themed Living in Harmony, which residents of the Toowoomba Region and Takatsuki City were invited to participate.
Of the 24 works on display, 12 are from Takatsuki and 12 from Toowoomba. Thanks in part to digital technology and a passion for photography, the Exhibition shows the diversity and unique perspectives of each artist, showcasing a wide range of photographic styles and content. This exchange provides both societies with an opportunity to showcase their region, country and culture through their images.
The Takatsuki K?eisha Photograph Association and the Toowoomba Photographic Society are proud to present the Toowoomba-Takatsuki Photographic Exchange for the enjoyment of the Toowoomba Region.
