T Enami


Today thanks to stumbleupon I found out about stereoview photos and T Enami who photographed the Meiji and Taisho Eras of Japan. He had a short-lived career from 1892-1929 upon his death. Stereoview photography is interesting because its limited movie type medium. Images shift back and forth between two snipid photos of the same scene catching a minimal movement. It’s also exceptional that Enami hand colored his photographs. I’ve been reading Fire on the Plains and recently watched Graveyard of the Fireflies, seeing these photos shows the societal condition of Japan upon its existant as an imperial nation. There’s a lot of material to these photos who appear so rooted in documentation expand into a category of culture being resurected by movement.
