Urban kaleidoscope by Shoji Fujita


Every time I look into my camera, it is as if I am looking through a wonderful world of kaleidoscope.

As I spend time observing and capturing the sun’s creations, I can’t help wonder how many of us are not aware of nature’s art show in the hustle and bustle of urban city life.

The ability of the sun, the passage of time and the changing of the seasons to transform a lifeless building into a vibrant graphic image is the concept he first worked on 28 years ago using traditional film. He knew what he wanted to create but due to the limitations of the technology he was unable to reach the results he desired which were sharp vertical lines that create and enhance ambiguous space. After several year’s had passed he reunited with this idea and images using digital technology that allowed him to create the sharp vertical lines and space that he desired. This excited his as much today as it did when he first conceived the idea.

Three-dimensional buildings transform into two-dimensional graphic images as sharp vertical lines become ambiguous by the sun creating it’s own lines with shadows, angles, and colors which create another kind of visual depth of it’s own. [Official Website]
