I seldom do 'book reviews' but sometime back I received a lovely package with a photo book of one of my favourite Japanese photographers (Thank you B!), and I found it irresistible to take some shots to show you. Mika Ninagawa is so famous for her brilliant use of colours that there has been a term coined as 'Ninagawa Colour'. When I was living in Tokyo I could always spot her photos right off, whether it's a sticker on a makeup bottle, a flip in a magazine or a huge advertisement billboard on the street.
The last photo was something I shot many years back under some heavy Ninagawa influence ;)
yeap, this book is great! glad that u love it ^^ReplyDelete
I love books, you always send me the best presents! I've just sent you something you will love too *lol*Delete
I hadn't heard of this photographer earlier but I have now! Absolutely loving the colors, they're almost psychedelic.ReplyDelete
Yeap and I've heard that she doesn't use photoshop, it's just that she knows her colours very well which I find amazing. There is another Jap photographer that I like called Rinko Kawauchi, you can check her out if you're interested :)Delete
