John Thomson – Window to the East
Exhibition in Florence, Italy
John Thomson (1837-1921) was one of the most important photographers in the 19th century and also a topographer, explorer and writer. As one of the earliest Western photographers travelling to the Far East, Thomson faithfully recorded what he saw of the Eastern world in the 19th century through his lens. Thomson is regarded as one of the pioneers of documentary photography and his photographic works as the most important social and cultural records of the time.
This exhibition is the most comprehensive of its kind showcasing 68 photographic works by Thomson of Formosa, China and South-east Asia, allowing viewers to travel back in time and experience the unique cultural and social facets of 19th century Asia.
