Hanran: 20th-Century Japanese Photography @ National Gallery of Canada

National Gallery of Canada held their opening for “Hanran: 20th-Century Japanese Photography“.
This exhibition which is on view for the first time outside Japan, calls attention to a period of socio-political upheaval in Japan, through photographs from the Yokohama Museum of Art.
Inspired by the Japanese word for flooding, overflow, or deluge, Hanran reflects early 1930s to 1990s Japan, as it unfolded in front of the camera’s mechanical eye.
I have to say I really love this exhibition because of the lovely black and white photos.
Also love the Japanese culture surrounding those photos.

Eriko Kimura who is the curator for Hanran Photography Exhibition.

The exhibition runs until March 22, 2020.
Thursdays are free.
