In the Details

Observing detail is, for humans, a vital survival skill; we take joy, warning, or knowledge from noticing the small things in life.   As a photographer and poet, I hope to stimulate our attention to what is in the  details of our relationship to nature, and to the world we are building around ourselves.  

An award-winning poet and photographer, Nagamura’s visual art frequently references the haiku tradition of pared-down, seasonal, suggestive and resonant expression. Nagamura spends hours observing a subject until it reveals its essence, an essence that was (of course) present all along, but might be visible only for a fleeting moment. Her work has been said to inspire the irresistible urge to go look at the world once more, carefully, with fresh eyes. Her images hang in numerous private collections around the world, appear monthly in The Japan Times, and on several NHK World TV productions.
