200 views of Mount Fuji by Hiroshi Masuko
富嶽二百景 [Fugaku ni hyakkei]
The third part of the Japanese trilogy published by Bromide books.
After Whisper of the Snow (Juri Ishiwata, 2020) and Once in a corner (Kazuyuki Yamada, 2021), Bromide Publishing House ends its japanese trilogy based on the three components of the ikebana arrangements (Earth - Human - Heaven & God) with the publication of 200 VIEWS OF MOUNT FUJI. The book displays views of the everyday life with the benevolent appearance of the Mount Fuji as a comforting parent.
The Mount Fuji has been a present in Japanese folklore since the 10th century, and has always been an inspiration in all forms of culture in Japan.
The book is an hommage to the woodblock printing masters of the Edo era and offers a contemporary look at the modern Japan where the photographers take the place of the painters, the cars the place of horses, the tourists the place of pilgrims and drones the place of kites.
