Iwata NAKAYAMA
Photographer, born 1895 in Fukuoka (Kyushu). Nakayama enrolled in 1915 in the newly established photography course at Tokyo School of the Arts (now Tokyo University of the Arts). Following his graduation, he traveled to the United States in 1921, where he founded Laquan Studio. In 1926, he visited Paris and was on close terms with Leonard (Tsuguharu) Foujita, Kinosuke Ebihara, and Man Ray.

After his return to Japan, Nakayama settled in Ashiya (Hyogo Prefecture). He co-founded Ashiya 1 Camera Club together with Kanbei Hanaya, Kichinosuke Benitani, and Seiji Korai. Nakayama experimented extensively in the darkroom with multi-exposure and layered photography, but also engaged in commercially oriented works and studio photography with a sharp stylistic edge. He died in 1949.
