Japanese Geisha and courtesans intrigue and fascinate Westerners. During the mid-19th century, Japan opened its doors to the world and became an essential destination for travellers. Geisha: A Photographic History 1872-1912 documents the intimate life and culture of this 19th century icon. It portrays the artists of these images in a cultural reality created by staged studio photography, private scenes and rare outdoor images. Essential viewing.
