Shiotani Teikoh (1899-1988) grew up in the small town of Akasaki (Tottori Pref.) located between Tottori (Ueda Shoji's hometown) and Matsue on the western coast of southern Honshu. Like Ueda he found ample inspiration in his local environment. Under the guidance of Nakajima Kenkichi he developed an instantly recognisable individual style using the popular the popular Kodak Vest-Pocket (besutan) Camera and practicing the techniques of 'deformation' (?) and 'rag-wipe' (zokin-gake) for printing. At the age of twenty he even founded the Akasaki Vest Club in his hometown and had his photographs published regularly by Camera, Asahi Camera, and Photo Times, where it became noted for his highly individual and yet artistic approach. Much of his best work focuses on the particular characteristics of the windy and sparse seashore of Akasaki taken during extreme weather conditions. Shiotani also practiced still lives as well as portrait photography. His portraits are often taken against a plain background highlighting the individuality of his subjects. His work is sensitive and sometimes moody. Like Watanabe Jun he was a member of the constructivist Japan Photography Association (Nihon Koga Kyokai). Published as vol. 10 of the Nikon Salon Books Series. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
