From the Collection of the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts
This book attempts to explore the value and significance of works created in the early stage of photographers’ careers. The works displayed in this exhibition have been carefully chosen from K・MoPA’s collection of approximately 10,000 photographs. Each of these works was created by photographers before they turned 35 years old, and span about 120 years from 1898 to 2016. In total, 340 photographs by 74 photographers are displayed in this exhibition. Apart from the works acquired through K・MoPA’s Young Portfolio program over the last 20 years, the exhibition also includes precious original works that were created by international photographers who have made a name for themselves in the history of photography, as well as works that epitomize aspects of the history of Japanese post-war photography.
