This exhibition draws attention to the activity of the Kyoto Photography Society (KPS), still relatively unknown in terms of Japanese photographic history, and introduces the work of two artists representative of that period, Noboru Ueki and Yushi Kobayashi. Ueki, who also participated in the 1st International Subjective Photography exhibition in 1956, is known for his work comprised of hand-painted abstract objects, and works typical of Kobayashi are montages of staged still lifes, architecture, and urban landscapes that emerged during postwar reconstruction. Displaying prints by Ueki and Kobayashi from the late 1940s to the 1950s, the exhibition considers how the avant-garde expression of photography that developed before the war was inherited and developed further by the Kyoto Photography Society (KPS).
