Maiko Haruki to fill with

24th november 2012 - 6th january 2013

The prevalence of dark tones and the lack of sharpness give to Maiko Haruki’s images a veil of mystery and abstraction. Maiko Haruki does not use special colour filters nor edit her images. However she is able, through a rigid control of exposure time, to shape images that trascend the simple fascination usually linked with photographs.

Only looking very carefully at her photographs, the viewer discovers details and clues hidden inside her works. In her extremely under or over exposed photographs, the perspective is flattened and the contrast is extreme, but as the eyes slowly get used to the darkness, thus the predominant black background is no more a total black, a hint of blue still survives, lending the photographs depth and profundity.
