A clump of weeds ひと叢の雑草

FUKUHARA Roso 福原 路草

Roso showed this work in the Second Fukuhara Roso Photogaphy Exhibition (Shiseido Gallery, March, 1937). In it, a straight photograph of some perfectly ordinary weeds is condensed the photographer’s transitory interest in his subject. In it we discern the literary side of Roso, who enjoyed composing haiku. In that respect, his work is based more on distinctively Japanese sensibility than Western romanticism, but at the same time is not inconsistent with the time in which he was working, that is, the Modern.
