“The light which, if you scoop it up in your hand, will disappear.
The pulsating red water is flowing,
one day it will reach the sea, and then the skies.
It is an eternal spectacle of a fraction of a while.”
Photographed in Wroclaw in Poland and in Tokyo, it is the theme of light that connects the photographs in Keiko Nomura’s “Melody of Light.” Through intimate portraits that reach much deeper than the skin, shots taken in nature and in urban settings, and the delicate play with religious and other motifs, Nomura engages with a host of tangible and intangible questions. What is the nature of identity and of our bodies; what is the importance of place and nature, and to which extent is the physical entangled with the metaphysical?
“In both cities the light of dawn appears in similar ways,
and soon the sun sets, light and darkness accompanying each other,
only time changes …
The light which had to appear there.
That is what the photograph is.”
― from Keiko Nomura’s foreword
