Fernando Ras on the Eclecticism of Meiji Period Architecture

SNA (Buenos Aires) — Photographer Fernando Ras shares his photo collection with reporter Astrid Walmer in Buenos Aires, discussing the characteristics of Meiji period architecture in Japan.

Fernando Ras was posted at the Argentine Embassy in Tokyo between 1996 and 2004, first as commercial attache and later as deputy head of mission. From early life an avid photographer, it was while in Tokyo that he took a keener interest in photography as a means of personal expression. For five years he attended a workshop coordinated by Tim Porter exploring black-and-white direct photography, and from the start architecture was his chief area of interest.
