Ever since a Dutch trade ship brought daguerreotypes to Nagasaki in 1840, the medium of shashin, meaning "to copy truth," has been as central to Japanese life as ukiyo-e prints were to earlier generations. The History of Japanese Photography, the first Western survey of its kind, opens March 2 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and includes portraits by early masters Kakoku Shima and Hikoma Ueno and darkly poetic views of Tokyo in the 1960s and '70s by Daido Moriyama.
