KEIKO NOMURA: Drop of Light to Rushing Water
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.
