Kuroyami when translated means “black darkness” and this theme is prevalent throughout the course of the subject matter presented in this volume. An assistant to Araki for a number of years, Sakiko Nomura’s work shares some similarities yet is not as immediately provocative. Sometimes diffused and grainy, the photographs capture people – vulnerable and exposed through (in) direct and filtered light sources. Dark and brooding, the photographs are presented one image per-page in large folio format.
