From Artistry to Ethnography

This exhibition displayed a collection of photographs in conjunction with the publication of The Journey of “A Good Type”: From Artistry to Ethnography in Early Japanese Photographs by David Odo. Following the volume, this exhibition examined photographs collected by Boston-area travelers in the 1860s and archived at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. A reception and book signing was also hosted on 10 September 2015.

Curated by David Odo, with Stacie Matsumoto and Holly Angell, co-sponsored by Asia Center.
