“They guide the viewer into another world.”

Max Fujishima does not construct a set or use of 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 this exhibition showcase miniature dolls of only a few inches height. They guide the viewer into another world.
