Transparency is the new mystery and other photographs by Mayumi Hosokura

October 03, 2017

We've been fans of Mayumi Hosokura's photographs for a couple of years now. Her series "Kazan" caught our attention in 2011 when Foam Magazine published it as part of their Talent issue. Her most recent book, Transparency is the new mystery (MACK books) features twenty-two images of nudes and crystals. "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."
