About this title


Japan: Caught in Time is a unique assemblage of unusual hand-tinted photographs of early Japan, selected from a collection assembled by Russian Botanist Alexander Vasilyevich Grigoryev, whose travels took him to Japan in 1879. Never before published as a collection, they were taken for the most part in the 1870s and preserved in the archives of the Russian Geographical Society in St. Petersburg. Many are unique and outstanding examples of early photography in Japan. As opposed to artists' sketchbooks or popular prints of the day, these 130 color photographs convey in a uniquely realistic way a vision of life in Japan in the last half of the 19th century. -- Midwest Book Review
