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
Hokusai’s Ukiyoe in the Edo era.
There are many postcards like this. We want to see Fuji-san this way.
But photographer Naoki Ishikawa (b.1977) approached differently for the mountain.
Ishikawa photographed it as a climber.
He even try to capture the image of Fuji-san by photographing related festival.
