This event has ended.

Mount Fuji with its distinct form has long been a symbol of Japan and worshipped as a “sacred mountain”. From the oldest map of the mountain found in the “Illustrated Biography of Prince Shotoku” to Hokusai Katsushika’s “36 Views of Mount Fuji”, the mountain has played a vital role in Japanese art history as an important motif. Inspired by Hokusai’s “36 Views” Takashi Homma is currently creating his own 36 views of Mount Fuji. 11 new photographs (monochrome and color) will be exhibited. Shot with a pinhole camera, Homma’s Mount Fuji is made into several different editions, each expressing one mountain in different colors and forms. Takashi Homma’s “Fugaku” is the latest in the 1000-year history of portrayals of Mount Fuji.
