masao horino

okay today we have a little history lesson in japanese modernist photography. masao horino was considered one of the most prominent photographers in the first half of the 20th century in japan. he was particularly interested in putting forth the beauty of machinery and photographed tons of bridges, tanks, towers, and ships. i love the combination of image and text here. you can learn more about him on wikipedia right here.
