Kumezu Ota (1877-1934) was born in Japan. He was first employed in the United States as a gardener at a private home in Pasadena. In 1921, he left that job to open a photography studio in Pasadena. He travelled to Japan, perhaps more than once, returning from one trip in September of 1928. As an art photographer, one of his earliest exhibitions was the 1924 Rafu Shimpo competition, for which two of his works were reproduced in Artgram (listed as Ohta). He went on to exhibit across the United States, Europe, and Japan, usually signing his prints K. Ota. He operated his Pasadena studio and continued to exhibit until his death on October 7, 1934, at the age of 57.
