Reading Footprints is a group show surveying contemporary Japanese women photography and video. The photography and video work portray each artist’s culture not as vanishing, but as part of a lively, assertive group of people confident about the importance of their cultures in the past, their importance to the present and their influence on the future. They sometimes use images identified within the changing cultural landscape, but these images are not used as emblems of a generic unified past. Instead the images carry specific messages or stories about how individual artists interpret their native community, family and intricate histories, how they experience the present, or what they project for tomorrow.
