DROP OF LIGHT TO RUSHING WATER by Keiko Nomura

15 EUR

手に掬えばこぼれ落ちていく光

鼓動するこの赤い水はいつか海へ、そして天へと

それは、刹那という永遠の光景

Light escaping from my hands as I try to scoop it
Stormy red water will circulate around the sea and sky someday
An eternal scene lies within a moment.


Keiko Nomura (1970, Kobe, Japan) graduated from Visual Arts College Osaka and studied photography in Los Angeles. She has already published 6 books, mostly with Japanese publishers.

In her work, women and water have been the motifs in her overarching theme of life’s infinite cycle beyond time and space.
