On Her Skin
by Asako Shimizu
Asako Shimizu’s unique approach towards photography is derived from her belief in the original power of camera to visualize emotions which beyond our visual perceptions. As an artist, she disciplines her self-express impulsion and instead let a machine interacts to the world and focus images of unexpected figures and values inherited to a subject. This objective sense makes the series of works narrative and fantastic providing the pure joy of integrating ourselves into the images.
The series was shot on a location at Lake Uyuni, Bolivia, in 2006. “Her” in the title pertains to the Mother Earth. There is no digital retouching.
Asako Shimizu is a photographer based in Tokyo, Japan.
