Portfolios of Photographs & Journal Entries
These fourteen portfolios were arranged for the 2002 publication of J.W.Bennett's memoir Doing Photography and Social Research in the Allied Occupation of Japan, 1948-1951. Each portfolio has its own page, containing a thumbnail view of each photo with its caption. Clicking on the photo or the photo's title will open a much larger version of the photograph.
Section 1: Urban Images
Section 2: Cultural Images
Section 3: Rural Research Images
In the following 3 pages, 60 photographs have been scanned that were not published by the Washington University project. Several photos are variants on photographs found in the main collection, but there are also numerous original photos.
J.W.Bennett kept a journal and wrote many letters while he lived in Japan. Each journal entry extracted here refers to its associated portfolio of photographs.
