Four Photographers Go Deep Into Modern Tokyo At New Getty Exhibit
The dense and hyperactive metropolis of Tokyo is interesting in many ways, from the old architecture mixing in with the futuristic to the crazy city life that juxtaposes with the quiet and peaceful. We get to peek inside the world of Japan's capital through the lens of four photographers at the J. Paul Getty Museum's "In Focus: Tokyo" exhibit that runs from August 5 to December 14.
The Getty Museum has been collecting these Japanese photographs for over a decade, but is finally putting them on display. The snapshots come from Mikiko Hara, Daido Moriyama, Shigeichi Nagano, and Masato Seto, who each tell a different story about Tokyo over the past 25 years. The photos features portraits of people in spaces like quiet parks and busy train stops, as well as examples of the underbelly of the city.
According to The Getty, "the selected photographs reflect the complexity of Japanese society and the variety found in Tokyo's urban landscape."
The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center is located at 1200 Getty Center Drive in Los Angeles, (310) 440-7300
