During the 20s and 30s still-life photography became very popular. The artificiality of placing objects in a frame and giving them a second nature clearly appealed to the Japanese. The present is Fukuda's only publication that ventures into the realm of modernist avant-garde. Fruits, vegetables, glass objects and the ubiquitous egg are arranged in a way that suggests surrealist ideas. Shadows play a particularly important part in his work and one can get a palpable sense of the exciting spirit of experimentation from this publication. Very rare. No copy in OCLC.
