The present monograph features photographic works by Maiko Haruki from 1999-2005, including works from her latest series 'Yell'. Haruki's photographs are similar in some respects to abstract paintings. The photographs initially appear to be composed of flat 'colour planes', however, a closer examination would reveal recognizable objects. 'Maiko Haruki's photography foregrounds this transition from looking at an unrecognizalbe object to identifying what we see - the process any of us go through in our everyday life, but mostly in an utterly unconscious fashion. As we slowly perceive that we are looking at birds, trees, people and architectural structures in these photographs, we carry out, as if for the first time, this usually automative process of perception, deliberately and consciously.' - excerpt from essay by art historian Gaku Kondo. With aritst biography.
