May 08--For this year's "Collection Exhibition," the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography reevaluates the relationship between Japanese religious culture and visual arts through a pilgrimage of photographs, videos and other works of the museum collection. In search of aspects of spirituality that have been lost to the modern world, works here date from the early 19th century to today, and include 168 photographs, about half of which are being exhibited to the public for the first time.

Highlights of the show include "Face of the Yumedono Avalokiteshvara" by Ken Domon and "All for One, One for All" by Tadanori Yokoo; May 13-July 13.
