Photo du Jour: Shadow of Mount Fuji

Kris_J_B

Photographer Kris J B, or Kris J. Boorman, has climbed Japan’s 12,380 foot Mount Fuji four times, each with the dream of capturing the perfect shot. On his third trek, he documented the shadow of the mountain extending to the West over the rocky landscape, but the image was not exactly what he was looking for, so he returned on year later for the final time before retuning home to the United Kingdom, preserving his memory of Japan in one arresting photograph.

“I have many times asked myself whether there can be more potent advocates of peace upon earth through the years to come than this massed multitude of silent witnesses to the desolation of war” King George V during a visit in 1922

One hundred summers ago this year, the First World War began, setting of a chain of battles that would claim some 16 million lives over the course of four years. For Fields of Battle, Lands of Peace 14-18, photographer Michael St Maur Sheil returns to the Western front, cataloguing its landscapes as they exist today. In contrast to the vast majority World War I photographs picturing renowned generals and bloodied soldiers black and white, Sheil presents a topography healed in part by the passage time and a century’s growth of verdure.

In celebration of the joys of summer comes Summertime, a book published by Chronicle Books and edited by photographer Joanne Dugan.

As it should be, it’s chock full of idyllic, witty, and wistful images of summer, and is justifiably dominated by water-centric images that result in a strong yearning to be relaxing poolside or on some remote beach, enjoying an unplugged vacation. One can dream…

For Float On, Hawaii-based photographer Brigette Bloom soaks her film in urine, creating ethereal bubbles over a desert landscape in Hawaii. Before shooting, she will steep her film canister in a cup of her own pee, allowing the fluid to break down portions of the emulsion. After rinsing the canister and allowing it to dry outside for a week, she loads it into her camera and shoots. Bloom explains that each roll varies based on the time of day when the urine is collected and what she ate that particular day.
