DROP OF LIGHT TO RUSHING WATER by Keiko Nomura

Out of stock

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. Nomura received the Newcomer’s Award from the Photographic Society of Japan in 1999 and New Photographer Prize at the 16th Higashikawa International Photography Festival in 2000 and has been exhibiting regularly in Japan in the last years.
In her work, women and water have been the motifs in her overarching theme of life’s infinite cycle beyond time and space. 
Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Contemporary Japanese Photography, vol.13' held at TOP Museum Tokyo (Tokyo Photography Art Museum) in November 2016.

Pierre von Kleist Editions is an artist run publisher specialized in photo books. We are committed to the production of new, innovative photo books and we believe the photo book to be a medium capable of expressing complex, abstract, contemporary issues and to reach a wide audience.

We believe that in a multicultural, globalized world the photo book is one of the privileged mediums. The language of sequential images is, perhaps, today’s most international language, understood by the large majority of the world population. Photo books don’t need translation, they need world distribution. Internet provides an efficient, accessible way for books to reach global audiences.

At PVKe we aim to produce books that transcend the documentary quality that is usually associated with the photography medium. We are interested in artistic achievements and in the specific qualities that the medium offers. We want to make books that tell stories and deal with the contemporary way of living.

The photo book is a complex art form that combines photography, graphic design, cinema, literature, etc. Our goal is to push the limits and conventions of the photo book, contributing to establish it as a respected, mature medium.


Pierre von Kleist editions is based in Lisboa, Portugal and is run by André Príncipe and José Pedro Cortes.
