Ashiya Camera Club
1930 - 1942.

The Ashiya Camera Club (ACC) was founded in 1930 by Iwata Nakayama, Hanaya Kanbei and other local amateur photographers from the Ashiya area near Kobe, Japan. Other members included Kichinosuke Benitani, Seiji Korai, Kenichiro Yamakawa and Juzo Matsubara. The members of the ACC practised various design concepts that were perceived as being too radical at the time within the Japanese photo community. They experimented with various photographic techniques already occurring in the West such as Dadaist photomontage, photograms and abstract compositions, but did so with a uniquely Japanese form of expression. From 1930 to 1942 the members of the ACC were some of the most influential modernist photographers in Japan practicing radical design concepts they labeled “Shinko Shashin” or new photography movement.

This book was produced in conjunction with a major exhibition on the ACC held at the Ashiya City Museum of Art in 1998.

Atsuko Tanaka
Search for an Unknown, 1954-2000


Atsuko Tanaka became a member of the Gutai group in 1955 as one of the few female artists in the group. Kindling the group’s spirit and experimental avant-gardism, Tanaka defied notions of art that were held previously, trying-out new materials and techniques in a bid to address and partake in the culture of the post-war art world. Bringing together the visual language of modernism with elements of Japanese traditional arts, Tanaka worked on abstract paintings as well as performance art.
