The gallery's permanent collection contains a great number of photographs, particularly by Kineo Kuwabara and (numbering in the hundreds) Kōji Morooka. An unusually large exhibition was "Love You Tokyo" (ラヴ・ユー・トーキョー, Rabu Yū Tōkyō) of 1993, which brought together 265 works by Kuwabara and 1479 by Nobuyoshi Araki.[2]
