Photographer Max Fujishima
New Century Artists, Inc., located in Chelsea, is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of the work of the photographer Max Fujishima.
The exhibition, titled "Wish You Were Here-1975-1995," opens on April 17.
Max captures and expresses the relentless flow of time, and of moments that exist in the interface between the photographer and his subject located on the other side of the lens.
There is a consistency to his
creative style and view of the world that flows through diverse themes, no matter what the subject of his
lens happens to be: nature, the city, dolls.
does not construct a set, nor does he
insert anything into his
pictures or otherwise manipulate them, preferring instead to capture the subject as it is, under the natural light of the sun.
In this new exhibition more than 80 pieces of his
artwork will be displayed.
Each of the images displayed is a constituent part of what may be considered his
life's work-a series of photographs of the Empire State Building, taken from another high-rise over the course of twenty years.
"One day," he
explains, "looking out from an expansive window in the direction of downtown, I happened to catch a glimpse of the Empire State Building.
Though I see it all the time, I felt an impulse that moment that drove me to pick up my camera.
I become absorbed in snapping pictures of it.
That was the beginning of the 'Wish You Were Here' series.
This exhibition is a magnificent collection of artwork that is an expression of the 20 years Max
has spent continually photographing a single subject, beginning with the inspiration he
felt on that day long ago.
Max Fujishima was born in Mie Prefecture, Japan.
