Flora and Sylva
Today we are highlighting hand-colored collotype photographs of flowers by Ogawa Kazumasa from the ten-volume series Japan: Described and Illustrated by the Japanese written by eminent Japanese authorities and scholars and edited by Captain Francis Brinkley with an essay on Japanese art by Kakuzo Okakura, director of the Imperial Art School at Tokyo, Japan. The series was published by J. B. Millet Company in Boston in 1897. Our set is part of the “Imperial Edition” of 100 copies and it was imported and printed for Mr. A. A. L. Smith, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Ogawa Kazumasa (1860-1929) was a Japanese photographer, printer, and publisher known for introducing and expanding photographic technologies in Japan during the Meiji period. Ogawa studied photography since the age of 15, first moving to Tokyo and later the United States to learn the latest photographic processes. He returned to Japan in 1885 and established a portrait photography studio and later Japan’s first collotype business. Collotypes were produced using gelatin-coated plates which replicated photographs in fine detail, but they were costly to produce and were often only offered in limited runs. The floral photographs we are featuring today are hand-colored collotypes.
Ogawa introduced the new halftone printing method to Japan. He traveled to the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893 and learned about the development of the halftone printing process which had the ability to produce photographs on lower quality paper in larger quantities. Ogawa bought the necessary printing equipment while in the United States and helped establish the halftone method in Japan, which allowed for photographs to be common in magazines and newspapers. His legacy in Japan is that he popularized many photographic printing methods which led to the popularity of illustrated books, magazines, and newspapers that were intended both for a Japanese domestic market and an international market that was interested in photography albums depicting “traditional” life in Japan, which was a part of the larger Japonisme influence on the West following the forced reopening of trade with Japan in the 1850s.

The Rocks at the top of the hill.
flickr
The Rocks at the top of the hill. by National Library of Ireland on The Commons Via Flickr: A gentleman in Tweed jacket and breeches admires a Dolmen or Cromlech at the top of a very stony hill. This image from the Clonbrock Collection has a date, but no location. Somehow rural scenes in those days seemed more rugged with rocks more exposed, and I suspect that this scene is more overgrown today? Photographers: Dillon Family Contributors: Luke Gerald Dillon, Augusta Caroline Dillon Collection: Clonbrock Photographic Collection Date: Tuesday, 10 May 1881 NLI Ref: CLON359 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie
