Since then, many hundreds of these tiny wonders have been sold and reached the camera bodies of people all over the world. This is not limited to the original 35mm focal length, as later a 28mm, 24mm and most recently a 21mm super-wide Perar followed suit. At Japan Exposures, we would like to celebrate this and are calling all photographers who have taken pictures using this Super Tpirlet Triplet lens.
Japanese Photography Magazines is a one-hundred-year narrative told through camera and photography magazines. This book traces how magazine publications continually served as a genre-defining platform, starting with early and pre-war fine-art photography, and continuing through to the dawn of photography as a medium-specific pursuit in the modern era, and the post-war period of expanded media and consumerism. In a complex and interwoven network, influential editors, designers, and writers were integral players that gave shape to the work of photographers. As a result, the Japanese photobooks that have come to be recognized as masterpieces have their origins in the magazine world. With access to mass media, the conditions were ideal for photographers to come into their own and establish what we now understand to be the defining characteristics of Japanese photography. In many instances, photographers launched their own magazines, serving as editors and publishers, underscoring the significance of magazines to Japanese photography. With authoritative texts and never-before-archived information, this publication expands the discourse on Japanese photography with a broad selection of magazines, photographers, and over illustrations.
