There will be an emphasis on images depicting life in Japan during various periods in the past 100 years. Prewar and postwar photographers, such as Domon Ken and Kimura Ihei as well as more recent ones like Hiromix, will be featured. This is an opportunity to see some of the most famous documentary images in Japanese photography. Also, see Phil’s PhotoGuide Japan Web site.
