This exhibition explores the work of some of the most prominent Japanese photographers of the second half of the twentieth century, including Nobuyoshi Araki, Eikoh Hosoe and Kikuji Kawada.
Witnesses to a generation that grew up in the aftermath of the Second World War, their work addresses both their personal experiences and the evolution of Japanese society. From Araki’s exuberant flowers to Hosoe’s lyrical portraits, these fascinating images encapsulate the natural beauty and social complexity of Japan.
The exhibition will feature around 60 works drawn from artists’ studios as well as from private collections. It will be the first exhibition on contemporary Japanese photography at the Sainsbury Centre, offering the unique opportunity to engage with a remarkable generation of photographers who transformed the genre.
The exhibition contains images of nudity and explores adult themes.
