Sin Sin Fine Art is pleased to present a group exhibition of Japanese Photographers born in 1920s - 1940s, featuring artists Eikoh HOSOE (1933), Takashi KIJIMA (1920-2011), Daido MORIYAMA (1938), Takayuki OGAWA (1936-2008), Eiichiro SAKATA (1941), Hajime SAWATARI (1940), Issei SUDA (1940) and Shomei TOMATSU (1930-2012).

The exhibition is curated by Sin Sin Man in collaboration with Akio Nagasawa. The seminal works of Postwar Photography in such a scale are brought to Hong Kong for the very first time. Japanese Photography is one of the biggest artistic contributions to the world by a single country in recent history. Though not imitative of traditional Japanese art forms, there is a similar regard for subtle balance, delicate mood and fine craftsmanship. These photographs provide an exclusive access to a particular time as it's seen by the eight legendary photographers through their camera lens.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong may be a small city, but it was once the world's largest toy exporter. High-quality, low-cost toys drew international brands to the city looking for factories to carry out production. Meanwhile, local toy manufacturers strived to create their own brands and tapped into overseas markets with premium products, taking Hong Kong-made toys to the world's arena. When it all started, Hong Kong was virtually unheard of and toys marked "Made in Hong Kong" were even sent back. As Hong Kong gradually built a reputation, however, "Made in Hong Kong" became a guarantee of good quality.
