Society of Photography 30th Anniversary Exhibition — Kazuo Nishii and the Creation of the Society of Photography

Founded in 1988, this year the Japanese Society of Photography celebrates its 30th anniversary, announcing the recipients of the 30th Society of Photography Award in May and hosting exhibitions for each of the winners in July.
Since its foundation, the Society of Photography has been publishing a biannual newsletter magazine which features photography criticism, reviews of books and exhibitions, interviews and reports from the Society’s committee. At present, 83 issues of the newsletter magazine have been published.

CASE Tokyo’s exhibition focuses on the late Kazuo Nishii, a founding member of the Society of Photography.
In addition to a list of all previous recipients of the Society of Photography Award and their winning works lining the walls, we will exhibit documents from the Society’s foundation period and back issues of the magazine, available to be browsed freely.

A republication of “A Chronicle of Kazuo Nishii”, a special edition of the Society of Photography newsletter originally published in 2013, will be available for purchase at the exhibition.
We will hold a screening of the movie “Letter from a Yellow Cherry Blossom”, in which director Naomi Kawase documented the last weeks of Kazuo Nishii’s life. After the movie, photographers Daido Moriyama and Shunji Dodo will engage in a discussion with each other.

For further details and updates regarding the movie screening and discussion event, please visit our homepage or Facebook page.
