Ogawa Kazumasa, a pioneering figure in Japan’s Meiji-era photography and printing, significantly impacted visual arts. Born in 1860, Kazumasa witnessed Japan’s metamorphosis under Western influence. His education spanned Japan and the United States, shaping his mastery in photography and photomechanical printing. A leader in collotype printing, Ogawa’s work embraced traditional Japanese architecture, cultural festivities, and nature. His renowned 1896 collection “Some Japanese Flowers,” featuring hand-colored flower collotypes, exemplifies his dedication to detail and nature’s elegance.
