The theme for this week is Japanese photographers. How is Japan visualized through the eye of a native Japanese? He was considered one of the most influential photographers during the time period after the war and the pictures he is famous for are the pictures taken after the war, which he have focus on the repercussions and the crisis Japan had after the fall of the empire.I have chosen these two photos because they are very uncommon during this time period in Japan. Orphaned kids on the street smoking, 1946. The picture above is a very strong picture, with a powerful message. A writer in his study room. The final picture I have chosen is of a writer working in his study room. Even though Japan do have poverty in small amount, that was nothing against what they had back then. My personal opinions about the pictures is that it represents a dark chapter of Japanese history, and I have never seen similar pictures from this time. /Quangus
