Kikujiro Fukuyama has been a photojournalist for 67 years and is still active at age 92. He first earned critical acclaim in 1960 for his work that followed the lives of a Hiroshima family for a decade, revealing the lasting effects and consequences of the atomic bomb. Since then, he has documented the history of postwar Japan, including the Great East Japan Earthquake and the catastrophe in Fukushima.

In a culmination of Fukushima’s work, the show brings to light important incidents in Japanese history as well as lesser-known customs of remote Japanese islands. It also reveals much about the photographer as a unique character in his field; Aug. 24-Oct. 20.
