Fosco Maraini

(15 November 1912 in Florence – 8 June 2004  Florence)

was an Italian photographer, anthropologist, ethnologist, writer, mountaineer and academic.

 Fosco Maraini is well known especially for his field work in Tibet and Japan.

The visual record Maraini captured in images of Tibet and on the Ainu people of Hokkaidō has gained significance as historical documentation of two disappearing cultures.

22.jpg

 

  In 1930, when he was only 18, he successfully showed his experimental black-and-white photographs in Rome at the exhibition

” Mostra Nazionale di Fotografia Futurista”.

In 1939, with a grant from the Japanese government, travelled to Sapporo in Hokkaido to study the tribal traditions and arts of the Ainu people, then on the verge of extinction.

He was also attracted to the art of ukiyoe or wood-block prints, especially those made by Hokusai (1760-1849), a master of evocative perspectives whose art influenced Maraini’s own work with a camera. 

Maraini also photographed extensively in the Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountain ranges of Central Asia, in Southeast Asia.

His field work was recognized with a 2002 award from the Photographic Society of Japan,  especially for his impressions of Hokkaido’s Ainu.

The society also acknowledged his efforts to strengthen ties between Japan and Italy over 60 years.

Maraini  is also  known  for his published observations and accounts of his travels with  Giuseppe Tucci during two expeditions to Tibet, 1937 and  1948.
