Vintage Photographs Of Daily Life In 19th Century Japan

A gorgeous collection of hand-tinted albumen prints dating back to Edo-era Japan are on display at the London Photograph Fair. They were taken by Italian-British photographer, Felice Beato, considered to be one of the world's first photojournalists, and give a rare glimpse into Japanese everyday life in the mid 1800s.
