Photo book "F The Geisha (Signed)" by Amari A (Mario A), a photographer and artist who was born in Switzerland and is currently active in Japan. His real name is Mario Ambrosius. With a German father, an Italian mother, and a Japanese wife, Mario A. came to Japan in 1982 and has been active mainly in Tokyo and Berlin. , released a number of photographic works with Japanese motifs. After 2000, he stopped producing photographs as Mario A and began full-scale activities as a Japanese painter, Amario. Works that express social satirical works in a fantastical way have received a lot of attention. This book uses the word "Geisha", which is often heard as a Japanese image in his hometown Germany, as a motif, and from the perspective of Mario A, a new "Japan" and "Geisha" image is depicted through Japanese eros. An ambitious work that I tried to do.
