A FARMER AND HIS WIFE in OLD JAPAN

The above ca.1895-98 studio image by Yokohama photographer T. ENAMI (1859-1929) was the second Enami image chosen for inclusion in the The National Geographic Society's monumental 100th Anniversary Exhibition book and catalog, ODYSSEY - THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY AT NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, published in 1988.

 

This Flickr post is NOT a scan from the book, but a scan from my own original print that is the same as the original in the National Geographic archives --- Enami printed more than one during his early days in the darkroom.

 

The negative used was actually half of a full stereoview image, which may be seen here cropped and mounted : www.flickr.com/photos/24443965@N08/4132383100/
