Acclaimed flower artist Azuma Makoto is set to curate a new exhibition entitled “War and Flowers” at The Mass gallery in Tokyo, Japan. Made in collaboration with Magnum Photos, the nearly month-long show will display iconic photographs that touch upon war-related subjects and mankind’s relationship with flowers. One of the highlights includes French photographer Marc Riboud’s famous 1967 photo of a girl holding a flower while confronting the National Guardsman at an anti-Vietnam march on the Pentagon.
“War and Flowers” will be open to the public starting July 20 up until August 15. Head over to The Mass’ official website to learn more. In related news, take a look at the winning images from this year’s iPhone Photography Awards.
