Japan… the Land of the Rising Sun and the home of the iconic Mount Fuji. Francis Ansing is a landscape photographer who just fell in love with Mount Fuji since he first saw it from afar and climbed its summit in the summer of 2016. He left his job in the Middle East in 2017 and decided to reside and work in Kanagawa, Japan so he could visit Mount Fuji often and explore deeper the stunning country. Since then, he’s been photographing the mountain, amassing an estimated of more than 1 terabyte of RAW files. He would go to the lakes on a Friday night from Tokyo via public bus and would wait for sunrise. He would take another bus to another lake for sunset. Then, he would set up his tent for another day of photographing the mountain.

This collection presents a portrait series of Mount Fuji photographed in three different prefectures: Yamanashi, Shizuoka and Kanagawa. This series shows the different faces of the mountain taken from various vantage points. Through this collection, Francis hopes to portray the magic of Mount Fuji and inspire people around the world to travel to Japan even at least once in their lifetime.
