The exhibition at Museo dell’Ara Pacis in Rome is the first ever exhibition of work by Ken Domon (1909-1990) outside of Japan. Domon is one of the most renowned Japanese photographers of the 20th century, known as a master of realism.
The 150 photographs on display, taken between the 1920s and the 1970s, illustrate the photographer’s path towards social realism. The photos from before and during World War II are closely related to photojournalism and propaganda, including Domon’s work documenting the tragedy of Hiroshima. His later work focuses on recording everyday life and the city’s transformation and westernisation, with ever-greater attention to social themes.
