JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHY MUSEUM LAUSANNE, Switzerland — It took more than 10 years for the Japanese photographer Takashi Okubo to find himself on the cover of a major photography museum.
The 43-year-old photographer was among about 30 people at the Japanese Photography and Film Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Thursday, March 11, when a picture was taken of him by a photographer who’d never seen him before.
Okubo, who is of Japanese descent, has worked in photography for 20 years, and was stunned by what he saw.
“It was really exciting to see the reaction of the museum staff and the guests who were there,” Okubou said.
“They all took their time to show the picture.
I was really happy and really thankful.”
The photographer has lived in Japan for over a decade and says he was excited to have the opportunity to share the moment with the public.
“I didn’t know anything about photography when I started.
I just wanted to show my work,” Okube said.
Okube has worked as a photographer since 2008, and has traveled the world photographing different subjects including wildlife, wildlife parks and historical sites.
The Japanese Museum of Photography was founded in 1978 in Japan’s capital, Tokyo.
It is considered one of the oldest museums in the world, with a collection of more than 2,500 objects dating back to the 18th century.
The collection was first opened in 2013 and the museum has now expanded to a 30,000-square-meter facility in Lauanne.
The new facility, which will open in March 2019, is also home to Okuboo’s personal collection, including more than 60,000 photos taken by Okubu over the past 20 years.
“I’m really happy to be here, to share this picture with the world and to show that I’m not just a photographer.
I am a human being and a photographer,” Okuba said.”
And also, the fact that I was able to show a photograph is very important.”
The photos will be on display at the museum for a month.
Okuboo has a passion for photography and has been traveling around the world since he was a child.
He is also a member of the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Photography.
Okuba is the third Japanese photographer to be featured in the museum.

In addition to the photography collection, Okubuo has an impressive collection of books, prints and memorabilia from Japan.
The museum was named the largest photography and film museum in the World in 2018.
A Japanese version of the Whitney Museum was also recently opened in New York City.
