Yasuzo Nojima (1889 - 1964) was one of the most important photographers in the history of Japanese photography, both as a photographer as well as a publisher of the short-lived but influential Koga. However, this book, published in 2009 on the occassion of a retrospective at Kyoto's National Museum of Modern Art, is his first "monograph" as it were. Says Ivan Vartanian, who produced the book:
Essentially, this book that I made is his first monograph. What’s more, it’s the first time the tones of the original prints have been faithfully reproduced. Nojima used a variety of printing techniques, each of which had its own tone.
