Yasui Nakaji (1903-1942) was an amateur photographer who is regarded as one of the important innovators during the 30s and early 40s. He was active in the Naniwa Club as well as the Tampei photography club - both as a contibutor as well as a judge at their exhibitions. In 1927 he was a founding member of the Ginrei-sha, a club that sought to explore new techniques of art photography. His death due to kidney failure on March 15th, 1942 marked the end of Kansai photography during the war. Yasui exerted a profound influence on the post-war generation on such disparate figures as Domon Ken and Moriyama Daido, who hailed him as the father of Japanese photography. The catalogue was based on an exhibition at the Shoto Museum of Art in Nagoya. (Titus Boeder)
