Small Vintage Japanese Photo – Kimono Women Nature

Description

This image has a very special quality which perhaps derives from the photo’s curious composition as well as the somewhat faded appearance.  Two women standing one behind the other are posing before a thick wall of foliage.  The women are wearing patterned kimono and foliage in the foreground partially blocks the subjects from full view.  This small, original old photograph is in fair condition with some scratches, stains, fading and discoloration.  The photo appears to have been previously mounted in an album as there is some torn paper from the album stuck to the back of the photo as well as at the corners.  The photo dates from the mid 20th century and was acquired in the historic city of Shizuoka, Japan near the foot of Mt. Fuji.

Size of photographic image*:
Height: 1.6 inches (4.2 centimeters)
Width: 2.1 inches (5.6 centimeters)
*excluding any mounting or border

Important notes:
To the best of our knowledge the photographic image offered with this listing is an original print and not a later duplication.  Age estimates as well as descriptions of the people and events occurring in the image are based on available information such as settings and activities depicted in the image as well as our experience with Japanese culture.  All photographs purchased from us are carefully sealed in plastic and shipped in a box instead of an envelope to prevent damage during transit.
