TRANSPARENCY IS THE NEW MYSTERY by Mayumi Hosokura [SIGNED]

日本人写真家、細倉真弓の作品集。本書はヌードと結晶の写真作品、計22点で構成されている。柔らかく透き通るようなモノクロの写真に映し出される、壊れそうに繊細な手のシルエット、うねる裸体、そして透明な鉱物の目を射抜くような美しさ。驚きに満ちた作家の美学がそれらを分かちがたく結びつける。

水晶のような樹が輝く洞窟の中の像のようにたれさがり、頭上の葉が宝石の枠をなして、溶けあい、プリズムの格子となり、そのあいまから陽光が何百もの虹を作って照りつけ、鳥も鰐も、ひすいや石英を彫って作った紋章の動物のようにグロテスクな姿勢に凍りついている、この森の驚異。- JG Ballard「結晶世界」

Transparency is the new mystery comprises twenty-two images of nudes and crystals, by Japanese photographer Mayumi Hosokura. The fragile silhouette of a hand, a coiled nude body, or the transfixing symmetry of crystalline minerals are shown in soft, translucent black and white images, held together by an enigmatic interior logic.

I was prepared for the transformation of the forest – the crystalline tress hanging like icons in those luminous covers, the jewelled casements of the leaves overhead, fused into a lattice of prisms, through which the sun shone in a thousand rainbows, the birds and crocodiles frozen into grotesque postures like heraldic beasts carved from jade and quartz… - JG Ballard, The Crystal World
