Visions for Sale

The Photography Study Room

September 5, 2013 – May 11, 2014

This exhibition brings to light a landscape and an exotic way of life that had been hidden from western eyes for centuries.  Photography, introduced by the Dutch into Japan in 1848, flourished in the 1850s.  The medium effectively recorded the seismic cultural transformation caused by the Meiji Restoration in 1868 when the country underwent a rapid transition from a closed feudal society to a modern nation.
