DESCRIPTION

The publication will be shipped from mid-July.

Showa35mm is an archive of 35mm film photographs taken in Japan between 1950-1989. It is named after the period of Showa era of Japanese history (1926-1989), in combination with the medium of 35mm photography which became popular in the post-war era. 

This latter half of the Showa era is often referred to as the Japanese economic miracle (Kodo keizai seicho) due to the unexpected growth and progress seen in the country such a short time after World War II.

The restorations are done by Irish photographer and archivist Alex Sinclair. The original film is restored using chemicals, then extensive digital work is conducted to produce clear images of the golden age of Japan. Individual frames take between five and thirty hours to restore in an entirely manual process. Only original film photos are considered for inclusion in the archive, with the original negative or slide purchased to ensure the best possible restoration can be achieved.
