Japan's first international photography fair, Tokyo Photo, strengthens its hold on the photography scene in Asia with its fifth yearly installment from Sept. 27 to 30 at a new location at the Zojoji Temple in the downtown area of the city.

The move to the storied temple for Tokyo Photo 2013, making the event a more unusual and memorable cultural experience, is hoped to appeal to a wider audience. The now-customary wide range of high-profile exhibiting galleries and agencies, this year numbering around 30, come from the long-established key cultural centers of New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Berlin as well as relatively new photography hotspots such as Beijing and Amsterdam.

In addition to each participating gallery or agency representing their own photographers, this year the fair is holding a number of thematically-structured exhibitions. These include an exhibition of photos of 100 children from Japan and China, and a display of the work of last year's Hasselblad Masters Award winners. Hasselblad, the famed Swedish camera company, last year strengthened its links with Tokyo through its opening of a subsidiary and gallery in Harajuku.
