An important source for the history of avant-garde photography: The famous magazine 'Koga' was founded by Nojima Yasuzo in association with Nakayama Iwata, Akiba Kei, and Kimura Ihei. The journal was first issued in May 1932 and seized publication in December 1933 after 18 issues. It became the most important organ of the Shinko Shashin movement, and in addition to the above-mentioned it includes important work by Horino Masao, Natori Yonosuke, Iida Kojiro, Hanaya Kambei, many of them members of the Ashiya Camera Club in Kobe. The magazine also introduced graphic trends and photography from Europe, including Man Ray, El Lissitzky, Otto Nagel, and Kurt Kranz. The present is a complete reprint of all the issues including text and adverts. It is a high quality printing effort doing justice to the original which is now all but impossible to get. Only one set in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
