Katayama Setsuzo, Beyond the Portrait
While running a photographic studio in Fukuoka, Katayama Setsuzo (1914-2005), produced portrait photography of more than one hundred and fifty great writers, artists, thinkers, and scholars, such as Mushanokoji Saneatsu and Shiga Naoya. His photography showcases the rich cultural history of the Showa period.
As the first photographer in Kyushu to receive a lifetime achievement award from The Photographic Society of Japan in 1973, Katayama had major contribution to the photographic culture in Kyushu by training photographers at his studio and serving as a professor at the department of photography, Kyushu Sangyo University.
