Hiroshi Nonami’s dreamlike women

One of my favourite photographers was born in 1954 in Matsue City , Japan. Hiroshi Nonami graduated from the Osaka Photography Academy in 1974 and founded his Studio No-ah in 1979. He is known for his dreamlike, mythical women, which he decorates with mostly natural props, such as leaves, blooms, seashells, twigs and roots.
Amazingly, Nonami’s images are made entirely by hand and not digitally manipulated. He intensively experiments and uses various techniques like growing mould on his film to create stains and stacking up slides to make his photographs more layered. The results are always breathtaking.
