Shibuya was a leading advertising photographer in Japan. In 1936 he won first prize in the Asahi Advertising Contest for his photographic storyboard for an advertisement for Crème de lait, a women’s hand cream. Shibuya exhibited widely throughout the 1930s and 1940s, and in 1952 formed the Japan Commercial Photographers Association. The photographs on this wall were part of a hand-printed studio portfolio, assembled and bound by Shibuya to showcase his work.
