In the Wake - Lost and Found
Munemasa Takahashi discusses the Lost and Found project, focusing on the recovery, restoration and digitization of personal photographs lost in the 3/11 disaster, currently featured in the Japan Society exhibition, In the Wake: Japanese Photographers Respond to 3/11.
March 11–June 12, 2016
The catastrophic earthquake and tsunami that struck northeast Japan on March 11, 2011 and triggered an on-going nuclear crisis has been met with an overwhelming reaction in the arts, marking a profound shift in the contemporary Japanese cultural landscape. Opening five years to the day since 3/11, Japan Society’s presentation of In the Wake reveals a stunning range of photographic responses to the disaster and the artistic paths that lie ahead as Japan continues to rebuild. Experience the power of art to transcend unspeakable tragedy with over 90 photographic works by 17 of Japan’s leading visionaries, including Nobuyoshi Araki, Naoya Hatakeyama, Keizō Kitajima, Lieko Shiga, and Tomoko Yoneda.
