Humboldt State University Library presents:
"Victory in Survival, R.W. Spurling, Japan, 1946-1948"
Pictures from everyday life in post war Japan
Digitally Enlarged Photographs by Harry Spurling
R.W. Spurling shot one of the earliest forms of color photography with a 35mm Leica camera, using Kodachrome slide film. While living in post war Japan, this amateur photographer used strong imagery to capture the people and their everyday life during the country's reconstruction.
Harry Spurling, a photographer in Willow Creek, presents the exhibition of his father's photographs. He digitally produced and enlarged the images to present the highest quality prints of this memorable time period. The exhibit begins Tuesday, May 16 and continues through August 14, 2006.
