In Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, Luxembourgian artist Raoul Ries circumnavigates Fuji with his camera, capturing realistic moments. The mighty mountain always bursts into the frame, like a leitmotif: sometimes sublime, sometimes hidden, as if playing a game with the viewer. At the end of the journey, not only have readers become familiar with Fuji's various angles of view, but they've also been given a good look at Japanese society, its connection with nature and its everyday life. In short, what we find here is landscape photography with an idea and wit. Published by Hatje Cantz (Berlin).
