Anne Wilkes Tucker, Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, has been one of the authoritative voices in the United States for Japanese photography. In 2003, she organized the highly celebrated exhibition “A History of Japanese Photography” at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and co-authored its award-winning catalogue. She has also contributed to a volume of photographs by Shibata Toshio, known for his images of civil-engineering projects imposed upon the natural landscape. In her lecture, Tucker provides a brief overview of Japanese photography and shares her insights about the works of photographers Shibata, Tomatsu Shomei, Moriyama Daido, Sugimoto Hiroshi, and Hatakeyama Naoya. 

This is a private joint event with Friends of Asian Art and Friends of Photography members.
