Teikō Shiotani (塩谷 定好, Shiotani Teikō, 1899–1988) was a photographer from Tottori, Japan.

Contents

Shiotani was born on 22 October 1899 in Akasaki (since 2004 Kotoura) Tottori. He enjoyed photography from his youth, and in 1919 set up the "Vest Club" (i.e. Vest Pocket Kodak club; ベストクラブ, Besuto Kurabu) in Akasaki; in 1938, this was renamed Kenkyūkai (研究会).

One of Shiotani's better known photographs is "Tenki yohō no aru fūkei" (天気予報のある風景, Landscape with weather report), in which the convexity of the horizon is emphasized by holding the photographic paper curved during exposure under the enlarger.

Shiotani died on 28 October 1988.

Shiotani's works are held in the permanent collection of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and constitute a major part of that of the Yonago City Museum of Art.
