Masters of Japanese Photography opened this month and runs until March.

Monserrat Pis Marcos, curator of the exhibition, said: 'Masters of Japanese Photography offers an unmissable chance to discover the work of three living artists who have significantly impacted the development of contemporary Japanese

photography.'

From Nobuyoshi Araki's exuberant flowers to Eikoh Hosoe's lyrical portraits to Kikuji Kawada's unsettling skies, the 65 prints are said to provide a snapshot of the natural beauty and complex society of modern Japan. The Sainsbury Centre, which has a strong connection to Japan with its collections including Asian objects and artifacts, has collaborated with the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures (SISJAC) to develop the exhibition.
