Ogawa Isshin, also known as Ogawa Kazumasa, learned English and photography as a teenager, and later apprenticed under photographer Shimooka Renjo, while serving as an interpreter for the Yokohama police. In 1882, Isshin moved to Boston, where he gained further training in dry plate and collotype techniques. Upon his return to Japan, he established successful businesses in Tokyo, including a printing factory specializing in collotypes.
