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.”
