Limited edition of Chris Steele-Perkins’ photograph of the famous Japanese Mount Fuji in 1999.
“Ask just about anyone what comes to mind when they think of Japan and they will reply – Fuji.
A Japanese person would say the more respectful form of address – Fuji-san.
The night I made this image, I stopped at some road works and Fuji-san was visible. I made a 4-minute exposure and the flashing red lights combined with the green fluorescent light of Fujinomiya city reflecting from the clouds was almost hallucinogenic.
This photo is the cover image of the book I made on Fuji-san. I created it as a consequence of meeting my Japanese wife. You could say it was an act of respect for, and a testament to my connection with, the country that formed this remarkable woman.”
The museum-quality prints are accompanied by statements from the photographers and estates, reproduced on archival-quality labels on the reverse of the print. The back of the frame is partially open so that this detail is visible. Size is including black frame.
