This presentation will focus primarily on the development of photography during the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Japan as Japan increasingly “opened up” to the West during the Meiji period. We’ll look at the ways in which photography was used by foreign (Western) viewers to help shape their understandings of Japanese culture. Then we will consider how the native Japanese uses of photography compared. The session will conclude with a brief look at later developments in modern photography and will touch on some highlights of contemporary Japanese photography as well.
