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 of Gifu, his hometown. This print is an experimental composite photograph. Other experimental works thought to date from before the opening of his studio include a self-portrait, Portrait of KOJIMA Ryua, and a photograph of his daughter, Portrait of KOIMA Towo.
