Asanuma with Dallmeyer

I couldn’t think of a better title for a very pretty half plate camera. Made in 1905 it is the lightest large format camera I own

I Dream of taking this camera to Japan to retake the images in an old album I found. I have posted the pages of the album, all half plate collodion hand coloured prints in the two previous blog posts A Calm Tension of Light and The Tokaido Road

I can dream.
