This event has ended.

Born in 1930, Shomei Tomatsu is widely considered the most important figure in postwar Japanese photography. Spanning more than 50 years, Tomatsu’s work examines the aftereffects of the atomic bombing on Nagasaki, the influence of American military and popular culture, and the impact of the post-1960s economic boom in Japan. This exhibition features images from two of Tomatsu’s major series – 11:02 Nagasaki, which explores the lives of survivors of the A-bomb and Chewing Gum and Chocolate, a photographic record of the Americanization in postwar Japan.
