Published works:


Fujii's project "Red String," was highly inspired by his parents' divorce, produced in a hand-made limited edition photobook. Nominated for several awards, including the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards. The book has been named as one of the best photobooks of 2014 by contributors to numerous publications including TIME magazine.


Published on the heels of Fujii's sold out Red String, Incipient Strangers (self-publish, 2015) looks at the relationship of siblings. It depicted a wider subject. The story was expanded from his parents to his extended family. The photobook was published for the exhibition at Reminders Photography Stronghold in Tokyo which also won the Self Publishing PHOTOLUX Award.


Since then, in October 2015 he moved back to his hometown Hiroshima from Tokyo to engage in his long-term research project called "Hiroshima Graph." Seen through the eyes of a third generation atomic bomb victim in Hiroshima city, the photo series attempts to shed new light on the disappearing traces from the war, so as to pass it on to the future generation.

  • .Sold out!.Artist statement : "Siblings can be incipient strangers. Even siblings sharing the same blood can become distant and turn into strangers to each other as they each grow and forge their own path in life. Sometimes, we fail to hit it off with friends and eventually lose touch. But with family, no matter how brittle the relationship, it cannot be...
