Research Area

TORIUMI joined this project from the international symposium in the summer of 2018. She will identify the photographers who were used to promote the national policy on the “South” and investigate their tendencies, and examine how the “South” experience influenced the postwar activities of the photographers. She will mainly investigate the photographic materials of the South that were published in magazines such as ‘Asahi Graph’. She is also in charge of photographing materials during the field research.
