Unique Exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography

Thursday, June 2, 2005 Posted: 12:53 PM JST

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.

Exhibition: How photography Changed People's Viewpoint--Part 2: Creation
Date: Through July 18, 2005. Open: 10 a.m.-6 p.m. (until 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays). Closed Mondays except July 18.
Place: Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, a seven-minute walk from JR Ebisu Station in Ebisu Garden Place.
Admission: 500 yen for adults, 400 yen for university students and 250 yen for high school and middle school students and seniors 65 and over.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
