Chewing Gum and Chocolate by Shomei Tomatsu( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shomei Tomatsu has created a defining portrait of postwar Japan. Beginning with his meditation on the devastation caused by the atomic bombs in 11:02 Nagasaki, Tomatsu focused on the tensions between traditional Japanese culture and the nation's growing Westernization. Beginning in the late 1950s, Tomatsu photographed as many of the American military bases as possible--beginning with those on the main island of Japan and ending in Okinawa, a much-contested archipelago off the southernmost tip of the country. Tomatsu's photographs focused on the impact of the American victory and occupation: uniformed American soldiers carousing in red-light districts with Japanese women; foreign children at play in the seedy landscape of cities like Yokosuka and Atsugi; and the emerging protest- and counter-culture formed in response to the ongoing American military presence. He originally named this series Occupation, but later retitled it Chewing Gum and Chocolate to reflect the handouts given to Japanese kids by the soldiers--sugary and addictive, but lacking in nutritional value

Shashin 100-nen : Nihonjin ni yoru shashin hyōgen no rekishi ten( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in Japanese and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This could be almost the first exhibition organizing the history of Japanese photography. By the sponsorship of the Japan Photographers Association, the history of photography for about 100 years from the end of Edo / Meiji to the defeat of the Pacific War was organized in the form of exhibition. The exhibition was held in Seibu Department Store in 1968. People involved in the organization of the exhibition were Tōmatsu Shōmei, Tagi Kōji, Nakahira Takuma et al. It is worth noting that the work of this history description was carried out by photographers themselves who were early to mid-carrier photographers, not by professional photo critics or photo historians. Region covered were from northern Hokkaido to the south to Kyushu, the contents were dealt with a wide range from anonymous photographs with the purpose of documenting reality to photo work tackled as expression. In addition, based on the results of this exhibition, a book named "Japan Photography History 1840-1945" was published in 1971. -- Seiichi Tsuchiya. DMP Museum Information Japan Artscape
