Significant text in English and Japanese. Tokyo Photographic Art Museum, which fills the role of Japan’s main photographic culture center, holds an exhibition every spring focusing on early photographs and this year, 2019, it will present ‘The Origin of Photography: Great Britain’ exhibition. Research into methods of photography began in the latter part of the 18th century, and with the announcement of the invention of the first photographic technology in 1839, the curtain was raised on photographic culture. In Great Britain, research developed by the members of the Victorian aristocracy was to have a broad influence on culture. In this exhibition we will present numerous works, many of them for the first time in Japan, to show the varied developments in photographic culture that took place in Great Britain but which remain largely unknown in Japan. In addition, it will also allow visitors a rare view of Great Britain during the 19th century, captured through contemporary photographs. We hope that you will come and see the broad range of Great Britain’s photographic culture and history that served as an inspiration to the Japanese during the latter half of the 19th century.
