About Kumi Oguro
Featured on LensCulture
- A wide selection of images from an exhibition focused on 12 female artists illustrates the breadth and power of the work created by women in Japan.
- These photos are all inspired to some degree by the language of cinema — the staging of locations, placing bodies in real-life situations, the expressionist use of light, the theatrical play between actors, indications of an off-camera area, effects designed to create tension, veiled references to the logic of genres, and more.
- Dream logic and dream images seem to exist outside time, suspended in ambiguous space, with their own hidden meanings — this young Japanese photographer has been exploring the theme of dream images for several years now, always with anonymous female models with long hair and hidden faces.
