The Ashiya Camera Club was founded in April 1930 in Kobe. Founding members include Hanaya Kambei (1903-1991), Nakayama Iwata (1895-1949), Benitani Kichinosuke (1898-1946), and Korai Seiji (1897-1962). The influential amateur club became a major force in progressive Kansai photography, promoting both shinko shashin as well as avant-garde trends (Zen'ei shashin). In 1935 the club's annual Tokyo exhibition was replaced with the Ashiya Shashin Salon, inviting nationwide contributions from a wide range of photographic trends. The present exhibition catalogue contains work by Hanaya Kambei, Kimura Ihei, Kuwahara Kineo, Nojima Yasuzo, Nakayama Iwata, and others. Contact details for each photographer are given at the end of the catalogue. The quality of the reproductions is high as is the quality of the images. Very rare. No copy of any catalogue in OCLC.
