Court orders Nikon to show Comfort Women exhibition

“A court ordered Nikon last week to honor its original commitment and to let (Ahn Sehong’s Comfort Women) exhibit run as planned. As it opened Tuesday, protesters denounced the show as a defamation of the Japanese, holding up signs such as, “The forcible carting-off of ‘comfort women’ is the biggest fabrication in history,” according to Asahi Shimbun.

The photographer told Japanese and Korean media he had faced threats and harassment from ultraconservative groups. He lamented that Nikon had kept the media out of his show. Nikon is reportedly still trying to appeal the ruling in order to shut down the show before it is scheduled to close in July.”
