A large number of Japanese American immigrants took up art photography during the 1920s and ’30s. Collector, scholar, and graphic designer Dennis Reed uncovered the long overlooked work of this community in “Making Waves: Japanese Photography in America, 1920–1940,” an acclaimed exhibition held at the Japanese American National Museum in 2016, and its accompanying publication Join us for a conversation led by Anne Nishimura Morse, the MFA’s William and Helen Pounds Senior Curator of Japanese Art, with Reed and the Getty’s Virginia Heckert, who has acquired Dennis Reed’s collection for that museum.
