Fukuhara Shinzo lived in Paris for a period of about six months in 1913 and these images already show the essence of his style. They resonate with a gentle warmth, like somebody who has just risen from a mid-day snooze. The most challenging image is possibly plate 5 entitled ‘Shadow of a Plant’: A small folding chair is propped against the corner of a house, with the shadow of a palm leaves seemingly growing in all directions from the centre of the chair. Here Fukuhara shows the strength of his eye: The scene could hardly be less remarkable and yet he manages to infuse this scene with a lyrical aesthetic that is very much his own. The first edition was privately printed in 1922 in a large folio with tipped-in plates (limited edition of 300 copies). The second edition is also rare. One copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
