Located at the foot of Mount Fuji is the Aokigahara forest. Since the 1960s, people tired of life come there to end their lives. They leave threads behind to be able to find their way out oft he forest again, in case they change their mind. Schittko’s images treat this place, where human suffering and motifs from mythology are closely intertwined, with subtle images.
