Index to short biographies of prominent people in Japanese photography. Although most are Japanese photographers, it also includes non-photographers and non-Japanese who have made significant contributions to Japanese photography. Early photographers (late 19th c.) and deceased photographers are included.
PhotoWho'sWho has moved from its old page at PhotoGuide Japan. These bios for the most part are now part of our archives and most are not being updated. Most bios were written from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s. So certain information (like date of death) might not be updated yet.
All Japanese personal names follow the Japanese convention of the family name (all caps) coming before the given name. Some biographies have both English and Japanese biographies. Japanese kanji characters are provided for Japanese names.
Old photobook reviews (PhotoReviews) have been incorporated in these bios. See PhotoReviews for a complete list.
For an explanation of the photography awards cited, see PhotoAwards.
For answers to questions such as who are the most prominent Japanese photographers, how to contact a Japanese photographer, etc., see PhotoWho'sWho FAQ.
