This old photo may It’s a little different from what we usually see, because it was taken by a Japanese in Showa in Peking in 1939. The subject of the photo is very single, there is only one woman, and this woman is not an ordinary civilian, but is engaged in a”fengchen” occupation. Japanese photographers have taken her from multiple angles and aspects. We are one of us. Get up and take a look.
In the photo, we can see that this name The woman should be around twenty-five or sixteen years old. In the first picture, she is facing the Japanese lens, making a gesture of looking back!
Because the photo is black and white, we don’t know What color is the cheongsam that this lady is wearing. But judging from the appearance of this lady, although the profession is a bit special, there is not that kind of overly heavy makeup.
In the photo above, we can see Then, this lady changed another location and changed a pose for the Japanese to shoot. Her expression was rather stiff, so these movements should be done in accordance with the requirements of the Japanese photographer.
This photo is of a woman in A photo before Jasmine. Similarly, it gives people the impression that they are more reluctant to smile.
The same background, another posture, and In this group of photos, we can see that for this woman, the Japanese photographer asked her to do a lot of different actions and changed different scenes!
So, as Japanese, why do they treat this This woman has such a great interest that almost all of them are shooting a whole photo album for her. Regarding this question, personally, we should consider from two aspects:
First:This is actually A kind of intelligence collected by the Japanese back then, because in the 1930s, the Japanese were in our North China has a lot of spy staff in various places, they will take pictures of different cultural and geographical details , And this Japanese photographer obviously did this. After the shooting, this group of photos was not lost in the war. After the war, it was directly preserved inside Kyoto University in Japan. From this detail, we can see that this is actually a big plan of the Japanese, and their work is also purposeful.
Second:The reason why this woman was photographed like this Many photos, my personal feeling, mainly because the photographer who was shooting is personally interested in this woman, and because of my own preferences, I took so many photos of her.
The two reasons that should attract our attention most should be the first. From such a historical detail, we can clearly feel that the Japanese at that time treated us The research is quite in-depth. They will take the initiative to shoot some life-like, fragmented scenes in various places (see other articles in this issue for details), and these unobtrusive characters, scenes and other factors will be linked together in the future At that time, it can provide the Japanese with a more comprehensive and detailed information about the local humanities, history and other information. The Japanese can complete the intelligence work in a calm manner. This approach is undoubtedly very terrible. Therefore, when we look at such a problem, we personally feel that we should not just look at the surface but have deeper thinking.
