This paper shall begin with a brief history of photography in Japan. It is said to be in 1840 that Japan imported its first Daguerreotype camera from Holland. Records show that Mr. Toshinojo UENO photographed some portraits of Lord Nariakira SHIMAZU, the chief of the Satsuma feudal clan, on June 1, 1841. Because of this, the date was designated in 1951 as Memorial Day of photography, when we have photography-related celebrations every year.
