Visit Resobox’s exhibition of 19th century photographs of Japan from the Burns Archive, and view the subjects of rice, silk and tea from an entirely new perspective. There will be a short dance performance before the lecture. Then we will take a look at the products and the photographs represented in this exhibition from different angles, including the aspects of ritual, manual processing, and the rapid industrialization that took place during the Meiji era.
