One of the symbols of Japan, Mt. Fuji attracts widespread recognition, beckoning climbers from all over the world to climb to its summit. For Naoki Ishikawa it posed a challenge to attempt to depict this icon in a brand new and dynamic manner, from ground zero to its snow covered peaks. The result is a photographic journey, beginning with images of a burning pyre of wood and a religious festival in a village at the foot of the mountain, followed by lush, ghost like forests, various snow-filled and summer-time landscapes, trekking paths, dynamic aerial panoramas, and of course, the top of the mountain found at the end of the journey.
