This is the first retrospective in Spain of the works of Shomei Tomatsu (Nagoya, Aichi 1930 – Naha, Okinawa, 2012), one of the most important photographers in contemporary Japan, whose work captured more than six decades of Japanese history. The exhibition covers the artist's long career through 180 photographs organised in 11 thematic sections that reflect the diverse interests that attracted his attention, such as the destruction caused by war, the presence of military bases and the Americanisation of customs, ravages caused by nature, the unstoppable progress of urbanisation, student protests, the survival of roots and traditions, the beauty of nature, and the exaltation of everyday objects, among others.
