A curious combination of gentle female portraits and still-lives, this book seems to be a call for peace when everybody was rushing to war. There is even an image of an icon showing Christ against a brooding sky. It 1942 “Departure” clearly referred to soldiers leaving home. And in the introduction Fukuda asserts that he will take his camera along anywhere, whatever the rest of his life has in stall for him. Only one copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder 4/2007)
