Japanese photographers after Tsunami: The devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 2011 followed by the nuclear crisis in Japan has challenged photographers there to be much more conscious of their role in society. At the same time, the vast number of family pictures that have been recovered amidst the rubble and mud has also called attention to the fundamental nature of photographs. Ms. Takeuchi’s lecture will introduce different disaster-related projects and works by Japanese photographers while addressing the significance of their non-journalistic approaches in this image-saturated era.
Ms. Takeuchi will also be speaking at pictura gallery on Thursday, March 8 at 7 pm
