The People by Kishin

Though he's one of Japan's most in-demand photographers, Kishin Shinoyama has waited this long to mount a large-scale solo exhibition in his native country. The People covers a wide swathe of the photographer's five-decade career, with images divided into five categories: portraits of celebrities both living (Stars) and dead (God), theatrical 'dream worlds' (Spectacle), eroticism (Body) and a recent series taken after the March 11 disaster in Tohoku (Accidents). The 120 pictures on display also serve as a drive-by tour of Japanese public life, with famous figures from the worlds of culture both high (Toru Takemitsu, Nakamura Kankuro VI) and low (AKB48).
