|Description: This image is from Bunka Shashin-shu, the magazine published by the Tokyo-based photo group Shashin Bunka Kyokai. The publication was influenced by Stieglitz's Camera Work. The group held regular juried exhibitions that included work by leading Japanese pictorialists of the 1920s. Top selections were published in their magazine. Only three issues were actually published, June, August, and September of 1922, although it was intended to be a monthly publication. This is from volume 2, plate 16. Nakamura was a Nagoya photographer.
There is some water damage to the margin of this print, but it does not affect the image. 1|
