    Stunning floral images of Kazumasa Ogawa, a Japanese photographer, printer, and publisher known for his pioneering work in photomechanical printing and photography in the Meiji era. In 1884, Ogawa opened a photographic studio in Tokyo and in 1888 established a dry plate manufacturing company, and the following year, Japan’s first collotype business, the “K. Ogawa printing factory”.

    The exquisite hand-coloured flower collotypes shown here were featured in the 1896 book Some Japanese Flowers, some were also featured the following year in Japan, Described and Illustrated by the Japanese (1897) edited by Francis Brinkley.
