Editorial Reviews

Review

"Their photographs of Northwest scenery, urban landscapes, and avant-garde artists, such as the dancer Martha Graham, are stunningly original in their use of abstract shapes, the juxtaposition of flat and deep space and subtle contrasts of light and dark." -Susan Platt, Cassone, April 2012

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Roger van Oosten on July 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
One of the best books about early photography I've ever read. The Seattle Camera Club was filled with an amazing membership of talented photographers. They recorded the world in a highly personal way, that is also strangely compelling. The fact that many members were Japanese-Americans demonstrates the valuable artistic vision that travelled here prior to World War II. Sadly, many of these artists, who clearly have a love of the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest as well as the vibrant early Seattle's city streets, were interned during the war. They live on through this book. You will be astonished.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This beautiful book offers an insightful, historical glimpse into the Japanese who settled in Seattle before WWII and into their embrace of impressionistic photography, which is showcased both knowledgably and exquisitely.
