Sankei Camera (サンケイカメラ, Sankei kamera) was a Japanese photography magazine, with monthly issues from May 1954 to December 1964. It was published by Sangyō-Keizai Shinbunsha (産業経済新聞社), publisher of the daily newspaper Sankei Shinbun, after which the magazine was named.[1]

The first editor of the magazine was the photographer Kuwabara Kineo (桑原甲子雄). Sankei Camera energetically invited contributions from young people and sponsored contests.

  1. "Sangyō-Keizai" means "industry-economy"; "Sankei" thus is something like "indus-econo", although it is much more natural and understandable in Japanese than in English.
