Publisher's Description

From the end of the Pacific War in 1945 to the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, Japan underwent an extraordinary transformation; from a defeated and devastated empire, mired in ancient martial traditions, it embraced modernization and mass production to become a rising economic power. This moment of radical change generated an enormous creative energy, which also influenced the evolution of Japanese photography from social realism to a subjective and increasingly personal style. This album presents 150 exemplary black and white images from leading photojournalists and street photographers, capturing Japan's changing view of itself in that remarkable time.
