“Photographs are not mere records but precious connections with family members and friends.” In Seoul, called Keijo under Japanese occupation in 1942, a Japanese man who ran a tiny photographic studio was ordered to take photographs of Korean prisoners arrested for anti-Japanese activities. The pictures were “mere records,” of the prisoners with their respective registration numbers. The photographer dreamed that someday he would take “real photographs.” Now, in Tokyo, his daughter has taken over her father’s dream. How do these two ages look through the viewfinder?
