The Younger Generation:
Contemporary Japanese Photography
October 6, 2015–February 21, 2016 
Several young Japanese photographers garnered attention in the 1990s, when their bold, colorful, often provocative pictures of themselves and their immediate worlds were collectively dubbed “girl photographs.” This exhibition celebrates the emergence of five talented female photographers from Japan whose careers began in the 1990s and 2000s—Kawauchi Rinko, Onodera Yuki, Otsuka Chino, Sawada Tomoko, and Shiga Lieko. Selected series by these artists evoke the influence of Ishiuchi Miyako, whose work is showcased in the companion exhibition Ishiuchi Miyako: Postwar Shadows.
