Meeting Modernity card set

A series of 4/1 postcards reproducing eight select images from Meeting Modernity, a traveling exhibition of found photography documenting Japan as it engaged with modernization and commercial photography in the Meiji and Taisho Periods of history. The Meeting Modernity series is comprised of portrait photography in particular. Meeting Modernity is the focus of my online cultural journal Néojaponisme’s first traveling exhibition. The postcard set was produced in an edition of 300 for the Los Angeles debut of the exhibition at Young Art. The rice paper envelope was designed and produced by Kate Hillseth and Paul Forney of Young Art.
