Vision of Aomori vol.16 – Part 2 One Fine Day

Kakizaki Teizo owned Kakitei Shoten, a general store that had been located on Yanagimachi-dori Avenue in Aomori City since the late 19th century. By the 1950s, Kakitei Shoten was selling pesticides, paints, industrial chemicals, lamp oil, incense, candles, and special dyes for making lantern floats used in the Aomori Nebuta Festival. Teizo always had several cameras on hand to record everyday occurrences at and around his shop.

As the second part of Vision of Aomori, this exhibition takes digital scans of Teizo’s photographs from before and after World War II and presents them in slideshow format. Photography was still rare at the time, so this exhibition is a valuable opportunity to see the people of Aomori come alive through his photographs. From the more than one thousand negatives that Teizo left behind, granddaughter Kakizaki Masako has hand-selected around one hundred photographs to be exhibited in One Fine Day.
