Ends in 52 days

*Fujifilm Square is temporarily closed from April 25 (Sun) until further notice.

Kazuo Kitai’s photographs for To the Village were serialized in twenty-four issues of the Asahi Camera monthly magazine from January 1974 to December 1975. The 1970s was a time when people in Japan were rapidly turning their attention to the cities. As if opposing this trend, Kitai chose the village as his subject, causing a stir with a fresh perspective that portrayed perfectly ordinary everyday life in After the Rice Harvest, Hot Springs, In the Snow, Country Road, Bon Festival, and other photographs. Kitai was presented with the inaugural Kimura Ihei Award for this acclaimed series of photographs. This exhibition features approximately thirty valuable vintage prints To the Village.



from April 01, 2021 to June 30, 2021
Until 16:00 on the last day.
