The Daily Yomiuri carries an excellent article today about the current exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.
Ten years have passed since the museum opened at the Ebisu Garden Place in Tokyo as the first comprehensive museum in Japan dedicated to the art of photography.
During these ten years the museum has given the public few chances to see its complete collection. This year, however, it is organizing a unique series of exhibitions to make up for this. It is putting its permanent collection on full display. It does so in a four-part exhibition series with the title "10th Anniversary Commemorative Exhibition--How Photography Changed People's Viewpoint".
Part 2 is now showing.
