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.
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.
Note[edit | edit source]
- "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.
