Photo du Jour: Shadow of Mount Fuji


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.

Having journeyed everywhere from Mongolia to Italy, travel and portrait photographer Brian Hodges seeks a genuine connection with each of his subjects, no matter how different they might be from one another. By framing those from diverse communities against a blank backdrop, he removes them from their cultural surroundings in hopes of highlighting the shared humanity that extends beyond geographical and social barriers. Here, he explores Pushkar, India, a Hindu pilgrimage site, through a group of sadhus, or holy men.
