Baron, a man of the world and a great traveler, Adolphe de Meyer (1868-1946) was also the first photographer to collaborate with the magazine Vogue America in 1913. At the beginning of the century, he went to Japan to visit the Meiji era. Although he destroyed part of his work, this Asian crossing remains, preserved by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. At the Buddhist temple in Kyoto, in Shinto shrines (ancient Japanese belief) in Nikkō or at Ueno Park in Tokyo, Baron de Meyer sensitively captures the beauty of Japanese architecture and nature.
