Image of gourd 瓜之圖(瓜乃図)

ARIMA Mitsugi 有馬 光城

This is a representative work from the special exhibits at the Japan Photograph Association exhibition in May 1931. In the subtle deformation of the gourd and the artist’s use of rag-wipe retouching to add depth, we can clearly see the pursuit of artistic truth by a photographer who said of his work, “I use my own judgment, purified through constant practice” and “I want to penetrate deeply to what is hidden inside.”
