 ‘TOKYO Before/After

 

 

The toured exhibition “TOKYO Before/After” sponsored by the Japan Foundation will tour all over the world for 10 years, start with The Japan Foundation, Toronto on April 11 to July11, 2018.

 

“While interest in Tokyo continues to grow throughout the world in anticipation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, this exhibition features a selection of approximately 80 works, in which works by photographers who had captured images of Tokyo in the 1930s-1940s are presented in juxtaposition with those taken after 2010.
We hope that the works of the Japanese photographers in this exhibition, through their specific imagery, will serve to encourage a deeper understanding of Tokyo as a vast city of many different faces.”
