Masahisa Fukase’s Bukubuku

Bukubuku, Masahisa Fukase, 1991-1992. On the surface, Masahisa Fukase's Bukubuku might feel like a humorous – albeit dark – take on the self portrait. Playing around in the bathtub, even the book’s title is an homage to the noise of blowing bubbles. However, delving deeper into his biography, the black and white images of the Japanese photographer, taken in 1991, alone and submerged in his bathtub are symbolic of the isolation and loneliness he felt at the time.

Ori Gersht is a fantastic fine art photographer. He’s taken the concept of Renaissance paintings and decided to shoot them and blow them up.
