Who was Teikō Shiotani?

Teikō Shiotani was a photographer from Tottori, Japan.

Shiotani was born on 22 October 1899 in Akasaki Tottori. He enjoyed photography from his youth, and in 1919 set up the "Vest Club" in Akasaki; in 1938, this was renamed Kenkyūkai.

One of Shiotani's better known photographs is "Tenki yohō no aru fūkei", in which the convexity of the horizon is emphasized by holding the photographic paper curved during exposure under the enlarger.

Shiotani died on 28 October 1988.

Shiotani's works are held in the permanent collection of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and constitute a major part of that of the Yonago City Museum of Art.
