Providing insight and in-depth information on Japanese photography
Over the past ten years, Japanese photography has steadily gained global recognition. With a growing number of group exhibitions focusing on key periods in Japan’s photographic history as well as a greater number of artists being presented abroad, Japan has become recognized globally as one of the major photographic nations. However, it can still be difficult to access information in English on trends, movements and individual artists. amana art photo is the first website to provide information both on established and emerging artists to encourage a deeper understanding of the Japanese photography scene, past and present, and to help collectors decide on which works to acquire.
