NOMURA SAKIKO
Black Darkness

Black Darkness 2008 Gelatin Silver Print  






Dubbed Kuroyami (trans: Black Darkness) by mentor Araki Nobuyoshi, Nomura Sakiko presents us with a series of black monochrome photographs, commemorating the release of her new book by the same title. Opposed to conventional photography methods, her approach to darkness leaving expanses of black space in her photographs – a tiger shining a single eye in the darkness, an expectant mother posing nude, revealing her veins – portrays everyday scenery through a filter of Nomura’s innermost eye.
