I study Meiji Period photographic objects, processes, technologies and primary sources to understand the historiography of Japanese Photography, and preserve these artefacts more effectively.
Because the histories of Japanese photography have only just begun to be told, I aim to aid in the identification, conservation, preservation and study of uncommon objects through my research.
In 2007 I co-founded SoHo Art Gallery in downtown Osaka, where I produced dozens of exhibitions, and curated special national and international projects during my 8 year tenure.
A few years later I started a gallery where I worked with scores of artists, curators and collectors spanning the breadth of the Japanese art scene.
My article "The Discovery and Identification of a Silver Mizunotype" was recently published in Photographica World, the Photographic Collectors Club of Great Britain's journal Number 157, December 2017.
You'll find me communing with fellow photohistorians at conferences, photographica fairs, symposia and informal gatherings.
I like staying abreast of the latest developments in photographic history research, conservation, digital preservation, and collections management
