Kyoto-born Kurokawa (1882–1944) was a successful pictorialist photographer whose work was regularly published in kabuki magazines and photo journals of the day, including "Shashin Reidai Shu" (Photo Example) Magazine. Traditional Japanese painting, or "Sansui-ga" highly influenced his work, which often included landscapes. Here we see a woman bending before a waterfall. The crisp focus in which she is rendered is unusual, and forms a lovely, stylistic contrast to the blurred, rushing water before her and in the distance.
