    He was born in Naka-ku, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan. He was the oldest son of Goro Yamamoto (1880–1941), who was the founding member of Aiyu Photography Club. He encountered surrealism and dadaism through the poetry magazine “cine´” published by Yamanaka Chiruu who was promoting surrealism in Japan.

    The oldest of his existing works is called “Aru Ningen no Shisou no Hatten・・・Moya to Shinshitsu(The Developing Thought of a Human…Mist and Bedroom)”, which was published in a magazine in 1932.

    In 1939, he formed a group called “Nagoya Photo Avant-Garde”. The group applied surrealism into their photographs and their avant-garde photography gathered national attention by some magazines like “Photo Times” and “Camera Art”.
