Sakiko Nomura has earned an international reputation for projecting in the deep, dark chaos of her photographs the vagueness of her memories, sentiments, and mutual emotional fluctuations caused by the photographer’s relationships to her objects. Another Black Darkness represents Nomura’s first ever experiments with the technique of solarization. Nude male and female bodies and cityscapes emerge in faint black lines, making up sceneries of black in which the darkness of Nomura’s own world expresses itself with particular intensity.
Designed by Satoshi Machiguchi, Another Black Darkness is beautifully printed in a limited edition of 600 copies / numbered and hand-signed by the artist, and published in conjunction with the exhibition 'Sakiko Nomura: Another Black Darkness', Akio Nagasawa Gallery 26 February - 13 March, 2016.
