Thirty Six Views of Mount Fuji

by Takashi Homma


Photographs: Takashi Homma

Text: Pico Iyer

80 pages

Pictures: 36

Year: October 2023

ISBN: 978-1-915743-25-1

Price: 44

Comments: OTA bound paperback. Bilingual English / Japanese. 24 x 30cm

This collection of new work by celebrated photographer Takashi Homma approaches one of the most iconic and widely represented images in Japan and the world: Mount Fuji. With its title referencing Hokusai’s famous series of ukiyo-e woodblock prints, Homma evokes his country’s traditions of representation and depiction while offering a haunting new encounter with his subject. Using pinhole cameras as well as digital technology, Homma forms ghostly images of the mountain as it resides to the southwest of Tokyo in collaged views that place it ambiguously in the wider landscape – both invoking and subverting the spectacle it has come to be associated with. With this new book, Homma writes a subtle and essential new chapter in the history of Japanese visual culture.
