Yu Yamauchi, Dawn 19, 2008

Dawn Series Photographs by Yu Yamauchi,

Last day Saturday, January 15, 2022

Yamauchi lived in a hut on the summit of Mount Fuji for five months a year for four years ­– a total of 600 days. Each photograph was captured at dawn from the exact same location. By revealing the essence of an airy mystical place, Yamauchi gives us the rare opportunity to experience the incredible spectacle of Earth waking up from the perspective of one of the planet’s most breathtaking scenic points. Essential to the artist is the notion of a physical place situated between earth and the universe.

This exhibition is at the Armoury, 840 Madison Avenue in New York. Monday through Saturday, 10am-6pm
