Fingered citron 仏手柑

SHIMAMURA Hoko 島村 逢紅

The Japanese art photography style, which advocated Pictorialism, developed by taking in, in parallel, a variety of aesthetics acquired in the course of Japan’s modernization from the Meiji period on. Thus, in this photograph from the 1930s, composition, subject, space, and other elements that go into its composition are not integrated into a single style of formal beauty. Instead, it might be said, they are introduced in parallel into the container known as Modernity.
