Today, with the development of information technology, disaster information spreads to the world in a blink of an eye through SNS and other media. Even after the Great East Japan Earthquake 10 years ago, the devastation after the disaster was recorded on various media, not to mention TV cameras, and spread throughout the world through the Internet. However, when the Great Kanto Earthquake struck on September 1, 1923, when there was no TV or radio, it was the staff of newspapers and news agencies, the engineers of government offices, and the photographers in the city that recorded the disaster information. They were the photographers who run the business. They took a picture of Yokohama, which became a burnt field, and sent it to all directions. The photographs of the Great Kanto Earthquake are not only in the "disaster magazine" that summarizes the records of the disaster, but also in the form of newspapers, graph magazines, and postcards. In this exhibition, we will focus on those original plates, especially the glass dry plates formerly owned by Nishino Photo Studio, which was discovered in Kamakura City in the fall of 2018 (Heisei 30). To go.
