    Tom Jacobson was an impassioned lover of Japanese photography who pioneered the pursuit and collection of Japanese works in the post-war era. His love for this specific genre of photography began through acquiring a set of rare journals which set him and his assistant and eventual partner on a fantastic journey, travelling through Japan to search out works which often meant meeting directly with the families and Estates. The result was an eclectic, wonderful and in many ways unique collection of photographic works which reflect many styles and influences and a distinct occupation with detail, structure, form and texture. The following lots are all from this collection, many of the works are believed to be unique and acquired directly from the artists or their families.
