T. Enami: Beyond Photography

T. Enami (Enami Nobukuni) is a Japanese photographer born in 1859. He made a series of photos of the early 20th century Japanese life during the reign of Emperor Meiji, using a stereo camera. This camera shoots two images at ones with its two lenses. These images are divided into centimeters to simulate a 3D effect. Later, these photos were painted, and now we can see them in the GIF format. 

T. Enami was Ogawa Kazumasa’s (a well-known photographer) student and later assistant. He opened a studio in Yokohama and also collaborated with another well-known photographer of that period, Tamamura KōzaburōT.Enami was also an Imperial Army Photographer during the Russian-Japanese war.

T.Enami managed to successfully convey everyday life of Japanese people, which in its turn revealed the clothes that they wore during that period. Even though the primary images were in black and white, by giving them colors, T. Enami shows the richness of Japanese national costumes.
