Why Japanese Post War Photography?

September 9th, 2018

I just finished reading about Nick`s Japanese Photo Documentary and in his answer he said that Post-War Japanese Photography was a subject that was close to his heart. I was wondering why that subject was close to his heart? Thank`s! Frannie Rhodes

From Nick: “My interest in Japanese photography began when I first saw photos from Dido Moriyama. I then started to discover many other extraordinary Japanese photographers whom I realized were mostly not so well known in the west. I am often drawn to Japanese aesthetic sense because it is so refined and different. It was also interesting to me as I learned more about the story how things paralleled between what was going on in Japan and the rest of the world post-war.”
