This catalogue/album is the first such copious publication of the photographic work and presentation of the person of Ze’ev Aleksandrowicz. It contains photographs taken during his trip to Japan in 1934. The man who took them, born in Krakow into the well-known Jewish family of the Aleksandrowiczes, was only an amateur photographer. He travelled widely during the interwar period and documented all his trips with true passion using a photographic camera. Aleksandrowicz’s Japanese photographs are an interesting record of a confrontation between West and East, an encounter of dissimilar cultures, different peoples. Landscapes, historic architecture, incidental people – rich and poor alike – encountered at a theatre, at a railway station, on their way to the temple, children, students immortalized with his Leica – all these capture a world that no longer exists, as photographic ukiyo-e. The album of photographs is preceded by essays by: Katarzyna Zimmerer, Or Aleksandrowicz, Sinai Aleksandrowicz and Danny Aleksandrowicz, Henryk Lipszyc, Mitsuhiko Toho, and Jan Motyka.
