Max Fujishima

Major Concentration of Work: Photography

Max Fujishima is a photographer who possesses a unique view of the world. His creative style is consistent no matter what the subject of his lens happens to be: from the natural to the urban, even encompassing dolls. Max does not construct a set or use strobe lighting, preferring instead to photograph subjects unvarnished, illuminated only by the natural light of the sun. Nor does he insert anything into his pictures or otherwise manipulate them. His works hold a light to the interface between his world and the world beyond the lens, exquisitely expressing the drama of the moment and the inevitable flow of time. The works in " Midnight Gaze" exhibition showcase miniature dolls of only a few inches’ height. They guide the viewer into another world.

Max was born in Mie Prefecture, Japan. He is a graduate of visual design in the Department of Fine Arts and Crafts at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. While working as the creative director of an advertising agency, he pursued photography on the side before devoting himself to it full time in 2003. In 2007, he organized a two-person exhibition as a culmination of his "Wish You Were Here" series.
