気持ちのよい波の写真。

As I mentioned before, there were many culture magazines, which covers art, music, photography, movie, anime and other subcultures, in 90s and early 00s. The magazine culture was closely related to photography scene at that time.

雑誌 relaxとホンマタカシさんのコラボレーション。

Takashi Homma collaborated with a magazine relax and published this magazine-like photobook in 2003.

Because it is a magazine, it distributed not only bookshops but even convenience stores.

He later released real New Waves in photo book format in 2007.

気持ちのよいプールの写真。

From the catalogue of the exhibition “Joel Meyerowitz: The Elements: Air and Water; Part 1″ held at Gallery White Room Tokyo in 2008.

“The “Elements Air/Water,” centered around a new video work, is a visual and conceptual departure for photographer Joel Meyerowitz.” You can watch the video at photographer’s web site.

日本人なら富士山好きですよね。

Even if you don’t know much about Japan, you probably know samurai and Mount Fuji.
Samurai disappeared from the street long ago but we still have Fuji-san, that’s what we call Mt. Fuji.

We love to climb up, sometimes worship, and of course paint and photograph Fuji-san.

Hokusai, South wind, Clear sky, early 19th century

北斎の浮世絵も有名ですし、

Hokusai’s Ukiyoe in the Edo era.

たくさんの絵葉書や写真愛好家の被写体にもなっています。

There are many postcards like this. We want to see Fuji-san this way.

しかし、写真家の石川直樹さんは「そうしたあらかじめ刷り込まれてしまったイメージ群から離れ」、「登る山として富士山をとらえてみたい」と思いました。

But photographer Naoki Ishikawa (b.1977) approached differently for the mountain.

Ishikawa photographed it as a climber.

クローズ・アップ。

Close up.

滝。

Waterfall.

日本三奇祭のひとつ、吉田の火祭り。

He even try to capture the image of Fuji-san by photographing related festival.

Red Fuji-san.

This is fire festival which is taken place every summer in Fujiyoshida-city.
