Among the striking works in the exhibition is Sudo’s photograph, Fu (Mt. Fuji) (2014). In the right foreground, a man perches on a boulder, wearing nothing but a white loincloth, his back to the camera. His state of near-nudity reveals the expansive tattoos that cover his body. It appears that only his forearms and lower legs remain unmarked. A sweeping view of bright blue skies over a deep blue sea opens out to the man’s left and onto Japan’s most iconic mountain, Mount Fuji—symbol of the country and always in plain sight, unlike its more concealed, yet no less iconic symbol, the art of tattooing.
