Kusakabe Kimbei

Japonaise sous l'orage

About this photograph

Japan, about 1875.If colour photography was first viewed on a grand - scale after 1905, Japanese photographers, as this astonishing image shows, had already requested talented painters to watercolor each of their albumen prints. In addition, Kimbei here invents ingenious studio ' special effects ': he imitates the rain and the wind by directly striating the negative and by tensing the threads moving the material of the kimono of this beautiful Japanese woman, who is at the mercy of a reconstructed storm.
