Adolfo Farsari – Old Japan

Posted by rod - 26.02.2010

A few days ago I found an interesting article over at Quazen via Notcot about Adolfo Farsari – The man who shot old Japan. In the 1880s at a time when most Europeans were denied access to the Japanese interior an Italian photographer managed to capture many images of Old Japan. These were then beautifully and realistically hand painted and serve as a remarkable record of a world long since disappeared. Read the full article over at Quazen

Finished here? Then have a look at these.
