FUJIFILM SQUARE is pleased to announce an exhibition of the photo collection “My One Shot” — single images of leading pioneers of Japanese photographic history, which runs from March 24 — April 12, 2017.

This photo exhibition commemorates the 80th anniversary of the founding of Fujifilm Corporation in 2014 (originally founded as Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd.). As part of our efforts to preserve the culture of photography, we have assembled a collection of works from some 101*1 leading Japanese photographers from the late Edo period (1603—1867) through to the present day who together have defined the course of Japanese photographic history.

This photo collection, which traces the development of Japanese photographic history, was first featured at the FUJIFILM SQUARE in Tokyo and the Fujifilm Photo Salon in Osaka before embarking on a tour of seven public art museums and galleries,*2 receiving wide acclaim from photographers and experts in the fields of the arts and fine arts. The exhibitions were rated highly and formally approved by the Association for Corporate Support of the Arts for their “contribution to society through the promotion of arts and culture” and permitted to use the official “This is MECENAT 2015” and “This is MECENAT 2016” logos.

We look forward to welcoming all visitors — from those with a deep interest in photography through to young people who have yet to sample the delights of the history of photography — to this extremely rare opportunity to experience the essence of the culture of photography with all images featured in the highest quality silver halide prints.
