Despite the censorship of dissident material during the decade between the Manchurian Incident of 1931 and the outbreak of the Pacific War in 1941, a number of photographers across Japan produced a versatile body of Surrealist work. In a pioneering study of their practice, Jelena Stojkovic draws on primary sources and extensive archival research and maps out art historical and critical contexts relevant to the apprehension of this rich photographic output, most of which is previously unseen outside of its country of origin. The volume is an essential resource in the fields of Surrealism and Japanese history of art, for researchers and students of historical avant-gardes and photography, as well as forreaders interested in visual culture.

This title offers an illustrated overview of the evolution of two very different strains of modern Japanese photography. In the 1930s, Japanese photography evolved in two very directions: one toward a documentary style, the other favouring an experimental, or avant-garde, approach strongly influence by Western Surrealism. This book explores these two divergent paths through the work of two remarkable figures: Hiroshi Hamaya and Kansuke Yamamoto. Hiroshi Hamaya (1915-1999) was born and raised in Tokyo and, after an initial period of creative experimentation, turned his attention to recording traditional life and culture. He went on to record cultural changes in China, political protests in Japan, and landscapes around the world. Kansuke Yamamoto (1914-1987) became fascinated by the innovative approaches in art and literature exemplified by Western artists such as Man Ray and Magritte. 0Exhibition: Getty Museum, Los Angeles, USA (26.3.-25.8.2013). --

PhotoSpeak is the first reference to provide satisfying, easily accessible information not only about the diverse techniques that have been explored since photography was invented more than 150 years ago but also about the ideas and the influences that have been central to those making and interpreting photographs. The complexities of photographic techniques from the calotype to the photogram to digital imaging are explained in clear, straightforward language, indicating how the processes work and how they shape the appearance of the resulting image. The international styles and movements within photography, from Pictorialism to postmodernism, are described using the same effective who-when-where-what format that has made the other volumes in this series (AntiqueSpeak, ArtSpeak, and ArtSpoke) so useful. Photography's many distinctive contributions to various subjects such as art, fashion, science, and travel are intelligently explored. And the aesthetic concepts and critical terms that have been used to explain (and occasionally obscure) photography over the last century and a half are demystified.

"On the heels of the Roaring Twenties, the 1930s, which spanned from the economic crisis of 1929 to the outbreak of the Second World War, was a dark decade. Beyond similiar governmental, mechanisms, these regimes shared an ideology: the will to create what they called the "New Man."" "This decade began with a more or less innocent dream of the theme of the original egg, germination, the harmonious growth of a fabric both biological and social, but ended with the nightmarish discovery of the corpses in the concentration camps by the armies of liberation in 1945."--BOOK JACKET.

In the 1930s and ’40s, Japanese rulers in Manchukuo enlisted writers and artists to promote imperial Japan’s modernization program. Ironically, the cultural producers chosen to spread the imperialist message were previously left-wing politically. In Glorify the Empire, Annika A. Culver explores how these once anti-imperialist intellectuals produced avant-garde works celebrating the modernity of a fascist state and reflecting a complicated picture of complicity with, and ambivalence toward, Japan’s utopian project. A groundbreaking work, Glorify the Empire magnifies the intersection between politics and art in a rarely examined period of Japanese history.
