(Portrait of girl) (女児像)

IDE Denjiro 井手 傳次郎

IDE was born in Nagasaki Prefecture, and moved to Tokyo in his mid-teens to study Western painting. After the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, he returned to Nagasaki and began to study photography. In 1926, IDE opened the Hibiki Shashinkan, a commercial photo studio, in the city’s Katafuchi district. For the next 16 years, until the studio closed in 1943, IDE did a brisk business. For many local residents, having their picture at the studio on an auspicious occasion or for a special event, was seen as a status symbol.
