Focus Japan«Focus Japan» is the first of our exhibitions about Japanese Photography this year.
We start with an overview of our collection. Alongside watercoloured Albumines from the 19th century, at that time mainly produced for travellers from the West, we show samples from the sixities and seventies, two important decades for Japanese Photography, as well as some works of the younger generation. Among others are: Rinko Kawauchi, Ruji Miyamoto, Ikko Narahara, Koji Onaka, Toshio Shibata und Issei Suda.
Alongside original prints you will also find a large range of Japanese Photography books. Compared to the US and Europe there are still only few galleries and public institutions in Japan that organise photography exhibitions. Therefore photobooks carry special importance for the reception of photography in Japan.
