ABOUT THE ARTIST
Mobile Photography Award Winning artist Souichi Furusho lives in Japan, and works as a graphic designer in the field of advertising media. He got an iPhone 3GS in January, 2011, and began to use it to take photos. His work expresses his vision of the creative world by combining various images.
Like so many others, we at the MPA shake our heads at the originality and power of Souichi Furusho’s iphone images. There is a dreamlike narrative running through Furusho’s work and we love his thematic use of umbrellas. Why umbrellas? We asked him about this and his answer is included below. It is with great pleasure that we offer Endless Blue from his “Umbrella” series as part of the Canvas Pop LTD Program.
“The umbrella has become a symbol essential to my work. For me, the umbrella embodies the thoughts and dreams of people; the umbrella is a vehicle which carries a dream.”
Readers of the MPA blog will no doubt remember Souichi’s photo essay The Umbrellas of Furusho – one of the highlights of 2012.
“With my iPhone I produce one work from many” says Furusho.
“I imagine, while looking at a photo I have taken with an iPhone: continue walking along the blue ground which goes…to where? Even if a wind blows and it is struck by rain, I will continue to walk with an umbrella of hope. To find the answer for me. I walk with hope that the future is bright.” – Souichi Furusho
