Lunch & Learn - Remote Villages of Japan: Their Stories

March 28, 2018 12:00 pm - March 28, 2018 1:00 pm

Photographer and painter Dr. Morton W. Huber will share stories of traveling in rural Japan.  Dr. Huber lived in Japan from 1962 to 1985, which inspired his two books, Vanishing Japan (1965) and Japan With an Artist on the Back Roads (2015).  His writing, photography, and painting is a sensitive and sincere presentation of a society undergoing rapid changes.  Dr. Huber’s work is an effort to record the older culture, beliefs, and traditions that developed over hundreds of years, now being transformed by Japan’s rise to industrial, economic, and cultural prominence after the conclusion of World War II.  Dr. Huber’s photographs will be on exhibit in Japan through the Photographer’s Lens March 20 to October 6.  Attendees are invited to bring a bag lunch, drinks and dessert will be provided.  Admission is free.
