"An eye for the world" is the title of an online exhibition hosted by the American Museum of Photography showing 17 pictures by Mr Shimomura. He toured Europe and the United States to study the management of department stores and returned to Japan with these remarkable photos now being rediscovered. You will find the exhibition here.
