In 2020, the new coronavirus raged around the world. All events were affected, and the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics were forced to be postponed. In the political world, Shinzo Abe, the longest-serving prime minister in history, resigned and Yoshihide Suga became prime minister. Shogi player Sota Fujii 8th Dan, who was the youngest player to win a double crown, was also active.
This exhibition presents definitive photographs from a wide range of genres, including politics, economics, society, sports, and entertainment, taken in 2020 by reporters from 35 newspaper, communication, and broadcasting (NHK) companies that are members of the Tokyo Photographic Journalists Association. About 300 works that capture the moment will be on display.
