About This Image

Profile Portrait of Woman Reading, 1870's

3.5 x 2.75 inch Ambrotype, 1/6 plate in Original Kiri-Wood Case

Hori was an early practitioner of the wetplate process in the Kansai region and did a series of ambrotypes on Boshin War soldiers in 1868. He instigated an important and incredibly artful practice, capturing the merchant and artist and soldier classes of Kyoto with great humanity and clarity. Hori's son (Hori II) inherited the family business in 1880, and turned it into one of the most prosperous studios in Kyoto.
