If you’re going to be in Japan this month, you might want to check out the solo exhibition of esteemed photographer Naoki Ishikawa. Read about the details after the jump.
Celebrated Japanese photographer Naoki Ishikawa recently opened his solo exhibition entitled “Halluci Mountain” in December 2011. Similar to his previous exhibit called “8848” held in September 2011, Ishikawa once again showcases his photographs taken during his journeys to the summit of Mt. Everest, the world’s tallest peak.
Ishikawa first reached the peak of Mt. Everest in 2000, at the tender age of 23. He began pursuing photography on a professional level shortly after, and soon, he was out taking astounding photographs of landscapes and snowy mountain peaks, with hints of folk life and anthropology.
This time, in “Halluci Mountain,” Ishikawa attempts to delve on the relationship between man and mountain, and how the usual familiar figures change when we view it on a different perspective. This could be in relation to Ishikawa’s two journeys to the towering mountain’s summit—first through the Tibet side, and the second through the Nepal side.
If you’re going to be in Japan in the coming weeks, you might want to check out Ishikawa’s “Halluci Mountain” exhibition. Take note of the details below:
