This is the Tokyo Photographic Art (TOP) Museum’s first exhibition of works drawn from its collection since it re-opened in September after two years of renovation. Formerly known as the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, TOP boasts a vast collection of works, including many by Japanese artists.

This exhibition highlights 41 photographers, including well-known names such as Takashi Homma, known for his contemporary urban images and portraits; Naoki Honjo, whose tilt-shift photography creates diorama-like scenes; and Nobuyoshi Araki, a longtime favorite for his erotic images.
