Michiyo Fujimori and Hiroko Tokai are members of the Himeji Soroptimist Club, and Alice Wells of Phoenix, an educator and chair of Soroptimist Clubs in Arizona, twice visited Michiyo in Japan. This year Michiyo and Hiroko traveled to Phoenix to participate in a Soroptimist fundraiser February 23, and during their Phoenix stay they visited the Through Each Others Eyes anniversary exhibit at Phoenix City Hall.
Michiyo is a photographer and married to Hisayoshi Fujimori, a member of the Himeji International Photographic Society which has worked with the photographers of Through Each Others Eyes™ for the past 25 years. When Janice Marshall and Francie Rink traveled to Himeji in 1994 with a TEOE delegation, they were hosted on many activities by Michiyo and her husband.
Errol Zimmerman is the president of Through Each Others Eyes™ and has visited Himeji more than 20 times.
Through Each Others Eyes™ held its first exhibit February 22, 1988, as an art exchange with Phoenix’ sister city of Himeji, Japan. Since that time the photographers of Through Each Others Eyes™ have sponsored 38 photographic exchanges with photographers, not only in Japan, but in Mexico, Cuba, Canada, China, the Philippines, Ireland, Scotland, the Czech Republic, and Italy.
Exhibits of photographs are held in Arizona and the cities abroad, and more than two million people worldwide have attended TEOE exhibits.
