I have dedicated my professional life to the study of Japanese visual cultures and photogrpahic practices over the past two decades. I currently study how science, technology and art intersected in Meiji Era Japan (1868-1912) to create a new, exciting and influential visual culture of self-representation, empire building and geopolitical dominance.
