Chris Steele-Perkins shots of Mount Fuji were inspired by a gift of a book showing photographs of the mountain. He was struck by the fact that most images taken of the mountain are traditional tourist type shots. Steele-Perkins took and alternative view, taking his shots in context of Japanese life throughout the year and at varying times of the day to give a fuller representation of Japanese life with Mount Fuji as the backdrop.
His decision to take images this way, shows the beauty of the mountain in a very different way – particularly in the way he captures the light at different times of day and during different season of the year.
