The series is Nomura’s first experiment with the darkroom technique of solarization. In the work, nude male and female bodies and cityscapes emerge in faint black lines, making up sceneries of black in which the darkness of Nomura’s own world expresses itself with particular intensity. Each of these works is a unique piece of photography. Another Black Darkness series was recently exhibited at Les Rencontres d’Arles in Arles, France (2015).
