Traveling across Asia, writing, photographing, as well as publishing several books. That’s what Eliza Scidmore did from the late 1800s to the early 1900s.
She was one of the only women photographers employed by National Geographic and would later become the first woman board member of the magazine.
Of the many places that she has visited, the place that captured Eliza’s eyes was Japan. Throughout her life, she visited numerous times in Japan and captured the everyday life of its people. Now, over 100 years later, we can see that some things never really changed.
Check out her photos over at Spoon & Tamago.
