By the end of the 19th-century, a new generation of photographers was emerging, many of whom studied in a system that was integrating Western ideas into Japanese culture. As Japan made the transition into an industrialized economy, artists began to establish themselves in the international arena. The pre-war modern photography movement in Japan flourished with a rich exchange of ideas and information as aritsts studied in Europe and international artistic developments were explored through exhibitions and publications in Japan. Modern Photography in Japan: 1915-1940will present over 80 images, many of which have never been seen before in the United States, by 35 photographers whose work evolved from a pictorialist tradition to the beginning of a modernist aesthetic.
