Eyes Of An Island - Michael Hoppen Gallery

Yesterday we went to see the 'Eyes Of An Island - Japanese Photography 1945-2007' exhibition at the Michael Hoppen Gallery, London SW3 3TD. The photos of post-war Japan were extremely powerful but with works of people like Shomei Tomatsu, Daido Moriyama, Hiroshi Hamaya, Shigeichi Nagano, Hiromi Tsuchida, Eikoh Hosoe, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Ryuji Miyamoto, Naoya Hatakeyama and Nobuyoshi Araki -amongst others, everything is worth a visit.

I was so impressed that we bought one of the limited edition 100 page hardback book accompanying the exhibition.

This London event was mentioned in Japanese newspapers as an important exhibition for Japan.
