Fuchikami Hakuyo left Japan in 1928 to move to Manchuria, where he worked for the public-relations department of the South-Manchuria Railway Company. He moved with the times embracing both modernist and photo-journalistic trends. In 1932 he founded the Manchuria Photographic Artists Association and in the following year began to work as editor for the Manchu Graph. The present issues coincide with the outbreak of hostilities in Northern China that eventually let to a full-blown invasion. Consequently the tone of the magazine changed from modern artistic to modern militarist. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
