The present publication had been published by the Osaka camera and film supplies company Kuwata Shokai since 1904. Each issue has an individually designed cover often printed in colour lithography. Images were selected in a monthly competition and reproduced in fine collotypes that must have been very costly. The articles feature critical essays often relating to particular photographs. In January 1904 Kuwata Shozaburo and Ishii Kichinosuke had founded the Naniwa Photography Club and from November 1905 Shashin Reidai-shu ran alongside Shashinkai which became the official organ of the club. Its membership was essentially composed of serious amateur photographers who determined the theme of pictorialism in the Meiji and Taisho era. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
