Matinee: 'A Tribute To Fujita' Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

20 August 2022

Saturday matinees long ago let us escape from the ordinary world to the island of the Swiss Family Robinson or the mutinous decks of the Bounty. Why not, we thought, escape the usual fare here with Saturday matinees of our favorite photography films?

So we're pleased to present the 462nd in our series of Saturday matinees today: A Tribute To Fujita.

This 3:15 slide show by photographer Kendy Fujita celebrates 70 years of photography by three generations of the Fujita family spent portraying "daily life, progress and flowers, sowing a little of its history in each photo."

The images were shot by Bunkichi Fujita and Jorge Fujita. Bunkichi migrated from Japan to Brazil, settling in Paran√° where he became a professional photographer.

Kendy graduated from college with a degree in psychology and worked in that field for a while. But, like the two generations before him, he found "personal and professional fulfillment in the precise capture and detailed handling of his photographs."

A director and producer of audiovisuals (you'll notice some special effects in this video), he specializes in mixing timelapse and hyperlapse videos. He has won the best photography award at the Photo Contest of the Trade and Industrial Association in Gunma Prefecture, Japan, among others. And he has been recognized by the Historical Geographical Institute of Paranagu√°-IHGP for his work preserving the photographic memory of the municipality of Paranagu√°.

The photographs were scanned at 1200 dpi and restored for presentation in 8K resolution.
