The Planet. Noguchi Rika

This beautifully produced catalogue accompanied the Ikon exhibition Somebodies, the first solo show in the UK by Japanese photographer Noguchi Rika. Consisting of four photographic series – I Dreamt of Flying, Colour of the Planet, About the World Below Zero and Rocket Hill – The Planet demonstrates the artist’s distinct vision of our world as an alien place. Noguchi does not manipulate her images, either through direction of her subjects or through darkroom processes. ‘I wish to photograph the truth, explains the artist…to find new ways of looking at the earth’. This illustrated publication features colour images of the four series that featured in the exhibition, together with a foreword and essay by Ikon Director Jonathan Watkins, a statement from the artist about the production of About the World Below Zero, a list of works, a biography, a bibliography and an essay by Atsuo Yasuda. This catalogue also features English and Japanese text.
