Under the painter Nobuya Abe’s direction, Otsuji took some experimental photographs at Abe’s studio in 1950. Three of these photographs were published in the magazine Camera with the heading, "New Staged Photography by Modern Artists." Some of these photographs are well-known such as Object and Portrait of an Artist. A newly discovered series of glass plate negatives contain interesting, as-yet-unknown images as well as details not visible in the prints of the time. We publish the portfolio of these photographs in conjunction with the exhibition. The portfolio includes previously unpublished photographs in different compositions, focusing on the fresh experimental collaboration between Otsuji and Abe.
