Various artistic trends originating in Europe after World War 1, such as Russian Constructivism, the Bauhaus in Germany and Surrealism in France, left a strong impression on Japanese art and photography in the Taisho and the early Showa periods. In photography in particular, the Western influence brought a new movement called Shinko Shashin (New Photography) in the early Showa period. This exhibition was an attempt at reexamining the viual expression in the period from the perspective of the photographic work of artist from fields other than photography, focusing on the work of Koshiro Onchi, Osamu Shiihara and Ei-Q
