The late ‘70s saw a tremendous increase of Japanese tourists in most major European capitals, combining business trips with a taste of the local culture and sights. This happy bunch seemed just as interested and perplexed by their actual surroundings as they were with the photographer shooting them (and being framed simultaneously by the objects of his lens).
Under the appropriately named collective ‘Memento’, Art My Place is proud to introduce a collection of historical works by (often deliberately) anonymous artists. These photographs have been carefully selected by our team to represent a by-gone era, harking back to very different times and places, yet still with an unmistakable presence and recognizable situations. Each month we will add a new find to this series.
