Osamu James Nakagawa: Fences, Maps, and Darkness - Visualizing Okinawa

Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Osamu James Nakagawa is the Ruth N. Halls Distinguished Professor of Photography at Indiana University, where he directs the Center for Integrative Photographic Studies. The lecture explores the complex history of Okinawa through two decades of Nakagawa’s award-winning photographic work. Okinawa, with its diverse ecosystems and primeval forests, has been in a prime cross roads of war and colonial expansion for centuries, a history that continues today. Nakagawa’s photographs bridge the inherently different interpretations of this complicated history through a cross-cultural lens. Professor Nakagawa’s lecture is sponsored by the Phi Beta Kappa Society’s Visiting Scholar Program and the Department of Art and Art History.
