Kumi Oguro





Whilst in Toulouse the other weekend, I was blown away by the work of photographer Kumi Oguro
Kumi was born in Japan, but now lives and works in Antwerp. Her work explores the relation between the still and the moving image, time and space and her photographs make you think of what is beyond. Often, a fragment of a body is shown - a lock of hair, hands that almost meet or feet dragging themselves across a floor. At the same time an event is suggested - a before and after that never is revealed.
Images that affect you for a long time after you have seen them, and really captured my imagination!
