Sendai Mediatheque The Two-Pronged Photo Exhibition - Lift up your spirits through photo appreciation
(Partial Translation of the Original Article)
Sneak peek into the gallery exhibits: http://sendai.keizai.biz/photoflash/1529/ (I think we have already seen most of the pics. Personally, I've never seen the pic on the far left which, based on what I read from the reports, is Miyamoto Kenji and Yuzuru working on Hana Ni Nare choreography at Chiba Aqua Rink.)
(From here onwards is my own summary of what's written next since it's not related to figure skating)On April 5, two photo exhibitions by various professional photographers were launched at Sendai Mediatheque (Sendai City, Aoba Ward, Kasugamachi).
Showcased in the 3300 (c2) gallery space on the fifth floor is "Figure Skating Photo Exhibition" by Mr. Noto Sunao of Sendai. Mr. Noto is actively involved as a sports photographer for figure skating (among others), with the main focus of producing commercial photographs. "I hope that by viewing the photos I've captured and accumulated so far, people who come to see the exhibits will be able to enliven their mood. I'd like this exhibition to be a mood-lifting experience," he spoke of the aim of this project.
A total of 80 exhibits of figure skaters in support of the project including Arakawa Shizuka, Takahashi Daisuke, Hanyu Yuzuru, Suzuki Akiko and Ando Miki are being displayed. It features a collection of photos taken from 2007 until March this year, concentrating on photos used in commercials, magazines and book publications, as well as unpublished works taken since December last year and beyond. "I'd be happy if it could also conjure up feelings of enjoyment from other people who are not figure skating fans," said Mr. Noto.
Showcased in 4200 Gallery space on the 6th floor is "Kobe * Heart" exhibition. The exhibition features works from 51 professional photographers based in various prefectures in Japan including Miyagi, Tokyo, Aichi, Osaka, Hyogo, Kyoto, Fukuoka. This is held in remembrance of the Great Hanshin Earthquake in Kobe over 15 years ago and aims to send smiles and hopes to Tohoku as a sign of support from Kobe who had once gone through the same tribulation.
ETA: Reports on the Photo Exhibition here
There seems to be a slide show showing Yuzu doing some ballet lesson. He wore a deep blue AE hoodie over a red T-shirt and black jersey pants.
It's been reported that there are 17 photos of Yuzu, not including the slide show pictures.
You can hear Brian say "Ok, I'm going to see Javi" right after he hugs Yuzu after his FS ^^
Thanks for the info! I remember hearing that Yuzu was taking ballet lessons in Toronto but I don't know if the photos would have been taken from there.
^ Not sure whether the photo was taken when he was taking a ballet lesson from his instructor in Toronto, or he was just doing some basic ballet exercises like rond de jambe at the barre by himself prior to one of the ice shows. But, according to one of the reports, he was doing some sort of ballet position in front of a mirror and it seems to have been taken at a practice venue for either Nagoya Festival or JSC.
Maybe next time we better try private share on YouTube, at least it could be sure videos won't been removed anyway.
Actually it's hardly related to YouTube coz the reason of YouTube removed video is due to third party calls associated with copyright infringement, you always could see something like 'this video has been removed due to compliant of TV ASAHI Co. blah blah blah', Japanese TV production is well known by its copyright restrictions.

Yuzuru sent a flower bouquet to congratulate Mr. Noto on the opening of his photo exhibition at Sendai Mediatheque.
I'll try to put up a report on the items being displayed in the gallery later.
I hope he observe the healing time and he is resting.
No ice, just rest.
I want to see Yuzu doing ballet so badly!
But I mostly uploaded on Youtube thinking about those curious fan who discovered Yuzuru and wanted to see more like I did.
Concerning Yuzuru's SP I looked for it too but can't find it anywere. Maye be it wasn't broadcasted.
I just watched Yuzuru's SP from worlds with British comments (here), and I'd like to share this quote from Samuel Reed after he finished. Feel free to correct me if I didn’t write the right words.
« It is such a responsibility to have talent like he has. For me, I think he has, I still say I think he has the potential to be perhaps the finest figure skater in history. But maybe, at the moment he can’t handle all that talent. »
Of course they didn’t know about Yuzu’s conditions at the moment. But they clearly love him.
