Masanao Abe - Cloudgraphy

In 1927, the Japanese physicist Masanao Abe built an observatory
with a view of Mount Fuji. From it, over the course of fifteen years, he
recorded the clouds that sourrounded the mountain. He was interested
in the scientific question of how the air currents around Fuji could be
visualized by means of film and photography.
