Dates:  1841 - 1934
Born:  Japan, Yamanashi Prefecture, Kofu
Active:  Japan
 
  
One of the most famous 19th and early 20th century Japanese photographers who worked with Felice Beato and Baron Raimund von Stillfried. Developing his own style, he operated his own studio in Yokohama from the early 1880s until 1913. When Stillfried left Japan in 1885 Kusakabe Kimbei acquired his plates and some of those of Beato and continued to print and hand color them. His subjects appear more relaxed with him than they did for Stillfried and Beato and this is probably because he was Japanese.
