Born in Osaka in 1947, Shunji Dodo was a 21-year-old photography student when he travelled down to Sasebo in Nagasaki to document the local citizens' movement protesting the upcoming port visit of nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. The vivid monochrome shots that resulted caused a minor sensation and kickstarted Dodo's career, which has now covered half a century. This retrospective exhibition consists of over 300 pictures and highlights some of the luminary's most notable works, including 'Osaka', the artist's ode to his home town, 'Haha', which depicts film director Naomi Kawase giving birth to her first child, and 'Japan Sea', an exploration of the rugged coastline facing said body of water.
