Japanese Photography at the Getty

Share:

The exhibition "Japan's Modern Divide: The Photographs of Hiroshi Hamaya and Kansuke Yamamoto" collates the works of two artists who both forged important, but alternate paths in Japanese photography. While Hiroshi Hamaya pursued the objective documentation of urban and rural life in Japan, Kansuke Yamamoto experimented with avant-garde forms of expression.

The exhibition is complemented by the following events:
