Max Fujishima

Photographer

Profile:

Max Fujishima is fascinated by motion — a breeze skimming the top of a field or waves surging through an ocean. Clouds forming and dispersing overhead as shadows afoot change hour by hour, affected by both sun and moon. Time is motion — it cannot be stopped — and we are all a part of it. We must endure moments in time that are difficult and challenging, knowing that another moment will follow and it will bring relief and encouragement.

These are the moments that Max searches for in his work. His connection with time is his entry point to the universe. Max's creative workplace is anywhere in the world that he finds himself. He feels the moment. By capturing its beauty and motion with the release of his shutter, he is able to share the moment with others. The spectrum of his photographs will evoke all of one's emotions. Max graduated Tokyo National University of Fine Arts in 1970. After his graduation, he worked in the advertising division of a fashion company. In 1973, he came to New York and worked at Dentsu America, focusing on Canon Camera, as Creative Director. At same time he started working on photography. Now he actively concentrates on his photography throughout the world.
