Art Photography In Japan, 1920-1940--what a tasty little catalogue! This 64-page publication covers photographic territory that is virtually unexplored.
While a "dealer" catalogue published by Howard Greenberg Gallery and Charles Schwartz, Ltd., this booklet is considerably more than that. Essays by Christian Peterson and Kerry Ross, and a biographical reference from Torin Boyd and Naomi Izakura make this an important reference work. All do an admirable job trying to fill in the blanks of this area of photography history.
For a copy of the catalogue, you can contact Howard Greenberg at 1-212-334-0010 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org , or Charles Schwartz at 1-212-534-4496 or by email at: email@example.com . The price is $20, plus shipping.
The catalogue was published in conjunction with two exhibitions of the work. Now on display until May 3rd at the Howard Greenberg Gallery at 120 Wooster St., New York City, the show moves on to Staton Greenberg Gallery, (phone: 1-805-962-9876) 15 West Anapamu St., Santa Barbara, CA on May 24th and closes July 12th.
