Photography arrives relatively late in Japan, almost 15 years after its appearance in France. It was in 1854, following the arrival of Europeans, especially the Dutch, that the Japanese discovered this technical innovation. Some artists quickly adopted this technique: Ueno Hikoma, Uchida Kuichi, Shimooka Renjô and Yokoyama Matsuzaburô.

The artists will combine their talents of colorization from the art of printmaking with photography, in particular to create family albums or testify to everyday life. Little by little, they will appropriate this new technology, until today it becomes the country where the most cameras are manufactured, and from which the Canon and Nikon brands were born.
