About This Image

Yokoyama first studied photography in the 1860's under the Russian diplomat, Iosef Antonovich Goshikevitch, and later Shimooka Renjo. In 1868 he opened his first photographic studio in Tokyo's Ryogoku district, and relocated later that year to the Ueno district. In the 1870's he collaborated on projects with Uchida Kuichi and Shimooka. By 1873 his studio was operating as "Tsuten-ro". By 1876, he became more involved with lithography, and less with photography, leaving the majority of his photography studio's tasks to his assistant, Oda Nobusada.

Yokoyama taught classes at the Japanese Military Academy, and in 1878, he took photographs of Japan's first gondola balloon there. In 1879, he went on to teach at an art college in Kyoto and made a series of works, including this piece, while there.
