Portrait of Kojima Ryua 小島柳蛙像

KOJIMA Ryua 小島 柳蛙

KOJIMA Ryua (1820-1882) studied and conducted research on chemistry and photography with his uncle Iinuma Yokusai, a practitioner of Western medicine, in Ogaki, a castle town in what is now Gifu Prefecture. Around Meiji 3 (1870) he opened the region’s first photography studio in the town Gifu, his hometown. This self-portrait and a photograph of his daughter, Portrait of KOJIMA Towo, are thought to be experimental works dating from before the opening of his studio.
