Kineo KUWABARA, editor. "ARS Camera Annual 1949." Yusaku KAMEKURA, art direction. Japan: ARS Publishing Co., 1949, First Edition, HB, dj, 26 cm x 19 cm, 77 duotone photos - one per page, 20+ additional pages of text, Japanese text.

A very rare book. Japan's artistic emergence from the shadow of war increases the emotional resonance of these beautiful images. A number of famous photographers - including Kineo KUWABARA, Ken DOMON, Katsuji FUKUDA, Yoichi MIDORIKAWA, Takamasa INAMURA, Ihei KIMURA, Shoji UEDA, Shotaro AKIYAMA, Shigeru TAMURA, Hiroshi HAMAYA, Shoji OTAKE, Yoshiyuki IWASE (portrait of a nude Ama diver - sure to be a favorite), and many more.

Condition: Quite Good. The photo pages are printed on a glossier style paper which has repelled moisture effects. The book binding is solid. The jacket has wear and losses at the bottom of the spine area. Definitely one of the better existing copies, considering it's age.
