JAPAN IN EARLY PHOTOGRAPHS: The Aime Humbert Collection at the Museum of Ethnography, Neuchatel
Photographs taken in Japan between the late Edo and early Meiji periods that found their way overseas played a major role in forming Westerners' image of Japan. Among these collections, the pictures gathered by the Swiss diplomat Aime Humbert (1819-1900) in the 1860s were crucial in building lasting representations of the island nation. These photographs offer a striking view on a lost world.
