Early Photographs of Japan (1 July – 4 September 2022).
Together we will organize an exclusive preview with a tour from the curator. From 1 July, the Rijksmuseum will devote an exhibition to the earliest known Dutch photographs of Japan. It was only by sheer good fortune that Antoon Bauduin’s photographs escaped destruction in a house fire of the family. To restore and conserve the collection for future generations, the family decided to donate more than 100 photographs of which 50 will be shown for the first time in the exhibition Early Photos of Japan. These photographs offer us a glimpse of Japan just as it was opening up its borders, revealing traditions in a changing landscape.
