Shibusawa Eiichi and Albert Kahn




Ealy photography in Japan

Shibusawa memorial Museum, Shibusawa Eiichi and Albert Kahn.Exchange of Two Businessmem of Japan and France, Tokyo 2010. Exhibition catalogue. Soft cover 30 x 21 cm. 94 pag. with around 100 photographs. Text in Japanese and English. 
"The Shibusawa Memorial Museum organized a special exhibition focused on two businessmen from 
Japan and France, who were active from the late 19th to the early 20th century: Eiichi Shibusawa, one 
of the leaders who contributed to build the foundation of Japan’s modern economic society; and 
Albert Kahn, French banker. Shibusawa and Kahn met face to face for three times: in 1897 and 1908 when Kahn visited Japan, and in 1902 when Shibusawa visited France.  They discussed about various topics including the financial issues between Japan and France, and invited each other to their private residences. 
Kahn devoted himself to the Archives of the Planet, a project to train and dispatch photographers to 
more than 60 countries in purpose of recording the life, customs, and natural environment there by 
photos and films.  This exhibition is going to be the first showcase of the Albert-Kahn Museum’s 
precious collection in Japan.  The oldest color photo shown in the exhibition dates back to 1908."

Shimooka Renjo A Pioneer of Japanese Photograhy

Shimooka Renjo A Pioneer of Japanese Photograhy




Japan early photography

KAZUO, M. a.o., Shimooka Renjo A Pioneer of Japanese Photograhy, Tokyo 2014. Size: 25.7 x 18.2 cm. 233 pages with 246 photographs. 
"Published in conjunction with the first major retrospective of Shimooka Renjo, held in Tokyo in 2014, this volume collects 246 of this important early Japanese photographer's works, dating from the late Edo period through the Taisho period. In addition to his many photographs, important examples of his work as a painter are introduced here for the first time. Fully translated into English, including all captions, new scholarly research and 
reference texts, this book is an invaluable new resource for collectors, scholars, curators, libraries and anyone interested in the history of photography.
Shimooka Renjo (1823-1914) was a pioneer of photography in Japan, yet until recent years few photographs had been positively attributed to him and little information on his life and work has been available in English. He 
also trained a number of important Japanese photographers including Yokoyama Matsusaburo, Esaki Reiji and Kamei Shiichi, contributing to the spread of photography in Japan.
Scholarly content in this book include articles by Morishige Kazuo (“The Life and Times of Shimooka Renjo"), Saito Takio (“Shimooka Renjo in Shimoda, Uraga and Yokohama"), Ishiguro Keisho (“Shimooka Renjo's Nude 
Photography"), Sebastian Dobson (“The Photographer called `Unshin:' John Wilson"), Minami Miyuki (“The Painter Shimooka Renjo: His Technique as Seen in His Western Paintings") and Mitsui Keishi (“A Pioneer of Japanese Photography: Shimooka Renjo's Place in History"). Japanese-to-English translation by Alice Gordenker and Carol Morland.
The reference section contains an all-new, complete translation into English of Shashin Jireki, an account of Shimooka Renjo's life in his own words. Shimooka Renjo lived into his nineties and had dealings with foreign 
missionaries including James Curtis Hepburn and James Hamilton Ballagh, as well as many of the major artists of his time, such as Takahashi Yuichi and Goseda Horyu.Published by Kokushokankokai Inc. under the supervision of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography."

The J.W.Henderson col. of Japanese photographs




Japan, oude fotografie

NEWMAN, D., The J.W.Henderson collection of Japanese photographs formed 1864-1876, New York 2000. Catalogue of an exhibition held by Hazlitt, Gooden and Fox. Soft cover 29,5 x 21 cm. 40 pag. met 75 foto's.

Sales catalogue of an exhibition held by Hazlitt, Gooden and Fox.

After 1854, when a Treaty of Peace and Amity was signed between Japan and the United States, foreign businessmen began to arrive in the once-sequestered island nation. Among them was a bank official from South Australia named John W. Henderson. He stayed in Japan for more than a decade and was interested enough in what he saw to collect photographs by professionals like Felice A. Beato, who had earlier worked in China and India. Henderson's cache of souvenir pictures, passed down through his family.
 
Some of the 75 photographs are of standard attractions like the Great Buddha at Kamakura; others are of Japanese ''types,'' from priests to labourers to geishas. Most interesting, though, is how the collection reveals an Asian culture on the edge of change. Pictures of Shinto shrines alternate with those of Western commercial buildings. Portraits of samurai hang near those of the Kobe Rowing Club, to which Henderson belonged. A shot of the severed head of a Japanese man executed for the assassination of British Army officers brings a range of social tensions to the fore. 
In short, Henderson's pictures document a world that existed before a tourist industry romanticized it, and global politics coarsened it.

Wenceslau de Moraes. Permanências e errâncias no Japão




Early photography & postcards Japan

PIRES, D., Wenceslau de Moraes.permanências e errâncias no Japão, Lisbon 2004 (Fundacao Oriente / ISBN: 972-785-064-2). Hard cover 29 x 39[super oblong]. 144 pages with early photographs, postcards and memorabilia. Limited edition(1.000) 
Resumo:
O “século cristão” no Japão – de meados do século XVI a meados do seguinte – deixou na nossa memória colectiva ecos difusos de um contacto/presença distante no tempo e no espaço, em ambiente exótico e aprazível. A presente obra é constituída por mais de 400 postais inéditos enviados por Wenceslau de Moraes a Francisca Paul, sua irmã mais nova, a pessoa com quem tinha mais afinidades. Tal cumplicidade garante-nos, desde logo, a abertura de espírito e o intimismo, revelando assim a sua sensibilidade e a sua empatia pela cultura japonesa. Esta correspondência permite-nos ainda acompanhar as múltiplas viagens de Wenceslau de Moraes praticamente por todo o Japão, designadamente pelas cidades de Kobe, Tokushima, Iocoama, Nara, Quioto, Osaka e Tóquio, entre outras.
Wenceslau de Moraes (b. 30 May 30, 1854 in Lisbon, d. 1 July 1929 in Tokushima), in modern orthography Venceslau de Morais, was a Portuguese writer whose works were steeped in orientalism and exoticism, particularly the culture of Japan. He has been compared to Lafcadio Hearn, a contemporary who settled in Japan but wrote in English. A translator of Haiku, his verse was also influenced by Symbolism.

Zartrosa und Lichtblau Meiji Fotografie




Japan early photographie

KÜHN,C.(ed.), ZARTROSA und LICHTBLAU Japanische Fotografie der Meiji-Zeit 1868-1912, Berlin 2015(publisher: Kerber Verlag / ISBN 978-3-7356-0048-6). Hard cover 29,5 x 24,4 cm.319 pages. Pages 1- 82 six essays with 35 photographs; pages 82-255 full-page colour photographs. Text in German.
"The exhibition features some 200 images from the most important commercial-photography centres in Japan. The display opens with works by Ueno Hikoma and Uchida Kuichi from Nagasaki, followed by work by Yokohama-based photographers Felice Beato, Baron Raymond von Stillfried-Rathenicz, Adolfo Farsai, and Kusakabe Kimbei, as well as Ogawa Kazumasa of Tokyo. The show offers a comprehensive survey of the major themes and stylistic devices of the Meiji Era. The featured works range from ethnographic typologies and staged genre scenes to artfully stylized portraits, nature studies, and architectural photographs. They form a canon of photographic travel shots, intended for visitors on a Far-Eastern 'Grand Tour' as souvenirs of their trip for universities and colleges back home, or as visual records to bolster and fuel the exotic imagination. Geishas playing and dancing to the shamisen, samurai, sumo wrestlers, kabuki actors, temples in Tokyo, or Nikko, or on Mount Fuji embody the stereotypes of the paradisal land of the cherry blossom that had been widely perpetuated in the West since the 16th century. The photographs exploit these clichés. At the same time, they often seem to cast doubt on the authenticity of the depicted experience."
