"Beautiful, but Mt. Fuji has a scarey side as well."
Japan from the ecosystem perspective is a central theme of Mizukoshi's works in 1996. Through his works, Mizukoshi shows us the symbiotic and close relationships that exist between creatures that at first glance appear totally independent. Even the darling of tourist shots, picturesque Mt. Fuji, has a totally different character once seen through Mizukoshi's camera.
"People take photos for Mt. Fuji's symmetrical shape, as seen
far from the mountain. It really is a beautiful mountain. On the
other hand, it's a dangerous and frightening mountain. I have
wanted to shoot the different characteristics of Mt. Fuji, from
different angles, and not only its beautiful shape. It is my approach
to capture nature as it is in my photos."
