The Umbrellas of Furusho
Like so many others, we at the MPA shake our heads at the originality and power of Souichi Furusho’s iphone images. There is clearly a dreamlike and dramatic narrative running through Furusho’s work and we found his consistent use of the umbrella intriguing. Why umbrellas? What do they mean to you? We asked him about this and his answer is included below. It is with great pleasure that we present to you a unified photo essay of the “Umbrella” series. Please enjoy the magic of Souichi Furusho.
“The umbrella has become a symbol essential to my work. For me, the umbrella embodies the thoughts and dreams of people. This is a series of images using the umbrella as “a vehicle which carries a dream.”
