IIJIMA-Ishou from Japan Exhibits over 400 Photographic

Works at NFT Market

 

 

On June 2, 2021, IIJIMA-Ishou, a design firm based in the hot-spring town of Yugawara, Kanagawa Prefecture, west of Tokyo, submitted more than 400 works, an unprecedented number for a Japanese photographer, to opensea.io, the world's largest NFT marketplace.

 

NFT is a "Non-Fungible Token" issued for digital art (video, images, music, etc.), game items, digital trading cards, etc. The word "token" originally means "evidence, souvenir, substitute money, voucher, or gift certificate," and in the IT field, it means "data or device that proves something."

 

At opensea.io, IIJIMA-Ishou deals in artwork, trading cards, game items, and more. For artwork alone, more than 1.47 million NFTs have already been issued (as of May 27, 2021), but there are few contemporary art photographs and even fewer works by Japanese photographers. In the huge market of opensea.io, 400 photo NFTs are extremely rare. Especially, IIJIMA-Ishou's NFTs, limited to one per photo, are very rare.

 

IIJIMA-Ishou currently offers more than 400 NFTs (as of June 2), ranging from high-quality film photographs taken since the 1990s to the latest digital photographs. The NFTs include not only "beautiful Japanese scenery" but also works that propose "daily life in modern Japan" and "life based on new values.”
