Keita Noguchi - Flower
The first photobook by Keita Noguchi is based on the theme of unconscious beauty. Inspired by the close and highly personal experience inherent in placing a sample on a glass slide and observing it through a microscope, he photographs a variety of flowers as if seen through glass. Appearing sometimes clear and sometimes blurred, the flowers seem to be floating in suspension, a watery medium of varying clarity, colour, and light. The book is made like a “white box”, with as little design as possible.
