The monograph

“In Color In Japan”

In Color In Japan” is the perfect example of how Shin Noguchi treats the camera as if it were an extension of his body—one that merges hand and eye, allowing him to show us what he sees, and more subtly, how he sees. Like many other Japanese photographers, Noguchi likes to work in an essay format, sometimes planned, at other times a post-hoc thematic exploration. In addition, he prefers to shoot with film.

In details

The photographic journey

Japanese photographers introduced Noguchi to a visual language for expressing the emotions he felt about his native society and culture. He likes to employ recurrent motifs that at times raise an image to metaphorical levels, and people in his street scenes are often faceless, seeming tools of a frantically rushed society.
