In other words, we are dealing with a homage to the Japanese world and to its particular photographic art.
The exhibition’s aim is to show the evolution of the Japanese photography by highlighting the variety of themes, the wide range of languages and most of all one of the most characteristic features of the Japanese culture: the relationship with the surrounding environment poised between ecstatic contemplation and irretrievable pain.
On this occasion, the notable Milan’s center for photography has selected 130 shots (from the fifties to today) made by thirteen different important authors belonging to the contemporary photographic art.
All the photographers in fact, come from the Maison Europèenne de la Photographie in Paris and among others, we can find also Shomei Tomatsu, considered the most influential and prestigious artist in the post-war period.
In addition, this is a really “catchy” exhibition also for an other reason. The majority of the photographs represent the individual/group relationships, and also the memory/tradition one, from the point of view of those authors who belong to the so-called “discouraged” generation, which lived in first person the choc of the radical change of lifestyle, because of the passage of modern Japan from a conservative and close-minded society to a open-minded and consumer one.
Soâ€¦All the photography lovers, as well as those who are enchanted by the Japanese culture, can’t miss this special appointment!
Nippon KÅbÅ awaits you all in great numbers!
