Irie Taikichi Memorial Museum of Photography Nara City 【入江泰吉記念 奈良市写真美術館】

For half a century, Irie Taikichi photographed the scenes and Buddhist treasures of Nara. When he gifted his entire collection to the city of Nara, this museum was designed by Kisho Kurokawa to house and display his works. The works of Irie Taikichi form the centerpiece of the exhibitions here, but other photographers and artists are frequently featured. Some works are even set up for viewing on high definition TVs.
