Opening Reception:Saturday, September 9, 4-6 PM

In late 1945, Cliff McCarthy was a young GI photographer in Japan. More than fifty years later, he came across the negatives of images he had taken in Tokyo, just months after the end of World War II. Many had never been printed. In 1998, McCarthy's photographs were first shown, appropriately, in Tokyo. Their exhibition at the Montgomery Gallery was co-sponsored by the Pacific Basin Institute of Pomona College
