* New or Sealed *

  • £48.95


The pre-war journal New Photography Studies and the photography magazine Kouga, under the lead of photographers such as Yasuzo Nojima, Ihei Kimura and Iwata Nakayama, introduced artists such as Eugene Atget, John Heartfield and Edward Steichen as well as translated essays by writers such as Franz Roh to Japan. The magazines attracted attention from Kansai-based artists and played an important role in the emergence of the “Shinko Shashin” movement, which challenged photography’s unique powers of expression

Revisiting these two groundbreaking magazines, the catalogue The Magazine and the New Photography provides a comprehensive overview of the Shinko Shashin movement, featuring many works never before re-printed, and all three published issues of the New Photography Studies journal.
