This event has ended.

The 20th century is called the “Century of War.” Still today, having had almost two decades of the 21st century, we continue to have wars around the world. Wounds of the Pacific War remain in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Okinawa and the Korean Peninsula. The calamity of war is still remembered as “Grief of the Mekong” in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Ethnic conflicts and religious confrontations which led to the Holocaust have become dominant again and tormenting people in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Sudan, and other countries.

Yoshino Oishi documents voiceless people suffering from the tragic scars of war, and pursues the meaning of peace through the lens. This exhibition introduces about 150 works from the photographer’s career of more than 40 years, visiting many victims of war and shooting the ravages of war for us never to forget them.
