This event has ended.

Yasuo Higa is not only one of the most renowned photographers in Okinawa, but he is also famous for his significant contribution to the field of ethnography. After the B-52 crash at Kadena Air Base in 1968, Higa resigned from his job as a policeman and decided to become a photographer. He is a photographer who symbolizes Okinawa in a turbulent era when events such as the Vietnam War and Okinawa's "restoration” to Japan stirred the region.
