About this Item

Description: 1 volume (chiefly plates, 30 of them) 28 cm, Japan Photographic Society, Contents: I. Arisawa villa.--II. Town.--III. House of Lafcadio Hearn.--IV. Lakeside.--V. Tenrin-Ji temple. OCLC Number: 589821 Condition is very good, note small, 3/8 by 1/8 chip off the bottom of the spine, slight soiling to cover, mainly the spine, and trivial at that, otherwise, spotless copy, tight, square binding, no marks. M/C locates a few copies, sort of a who's who of art colleges and libraries. Photographic style is almost unique, enigmatic. Fukuhara is sometimes called the Father of modern Japanese photography. He studied pharmacology at Columbia, then traveled the world, seemingly to solidify his new career. He uses both focus and crops to give us feelings, more than panoramas or journalistic type content. the section on Lafcadio Hearn is especially pleasing for those who have studied Hearn, or at least I liked it very much.
