Archives Week 2017 -- FUJISAN: ETERNAL SYMBOL OF JAPAN, Nineteenth Century Photographs from The Burns Archive

The Burns Archive is proud to present our sixth annual exhibition of hand-painted nineteenth century Japanese photographs at the RESOBOX Gallery. This year’s theme is the iconic Mt. Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan (12,389 ft). The exhibit includes Meiji Era (1868-1912) photographs of landscapes depicting the great mountain from various viewpoints, as well as staged studio scenes featuring Fujisan as backdrop. Mt. Fuji, with its graceful conical form, is a sacred and eternal symbol of Japan.

Join us for a gallery talk and exhibition viewing.
