Suzuki Hachiro (1900-1985) was born in Hokkaido. He moved to Tokyo aged eleven and in 1916 entered the Waseda Engineering School to study architecture. It was during his time as a student that he became interested in photography and he submitted photographs to Shashin Geppo. He formed a friendship with the photographer Takakuwata Katsuo (1883-1955) who inspired him to seek a career in the field. Together with Kanamaru Shigene he opened a commercial photo-studio called Kinrei-sha in 1926 and in 1930 was a co-founder of the Tokyo Commercial Photographers Association (Shogyo Shashinka Kyokai). He published a large number of photography manuals for ARS and after the war continued to work as editor for a number of important photography magazines. Published some three years after his death the present work comes close to being an isaku-shu. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
