Just when the pressure for 'patriotic photography' came to bear on the publishing industry, another high quality magazine appeared on the market that staunchly defended a non-political/artistic stance: Koga Gekkan came with an attractive modern layout and was printed on high quality paper. The term koga was a direct translation of 'Lichtbild' (lit. light picture), the term commonly used in Germany before the war. The editor Kitano Kunio (1910-2000) had a strong interest in international photographic trends, and featured the latest German and American works. The first issues includes a review of Brassai's 'Paris de Nuit' by Fukuda Katsuji. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
