The 2015 Liverpool School of Art and Design Degree Show will be open to the public from Friday 29 May to Friday 12 June.

This exhibition reflects on the turbulent period in Japan following the war, exhibiting over 100 black and white photographs by 11 leading post-war Japanese photographers.
The exhibition features work by Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Shomei Tomatsu, Eikoh Hosoe and Ken Domon among others. Rather than arranging the works by period and author, this exhibition is divided into three sections – “The Aftermath of the War,” “Between Tradition and Modernity,” and “Towards a New Japan.”
