Harvest 収穫

FUCHIKAMI Hakuyo 淵上 白陽

The photographer, who made expressionism his trademark, created this photograph the year before he left Japan for Manchuria. His subjects are two peasant women, who appear to have been shot from a low angle. During the enlargement they were then stretched further in the vertical, resulting in the deformation we see. The combination of sepia tint and rag-wipe retouching is shot through with the photographer’s almost violent sympathy with working people’s lives. This image speaks of the heat of his passion for the “human art” he pursued.
