Furukawa Takahisa, in his a view of China in the Weekly Photographic Magazine (****), points out that attempts were made before the early 1940's to graphically represent Japan's policies, after he reviews the photographs in the news about China published in the Weekly Photographic Magazine, a weekly photographic public relations magazine issued by the Japanese government in the early Showa Period.
