Shot in Dungeness, on the coast of England, this series by Berlin-based photographer Shinichiro Shiraishi is influenced by memories of his childhood visits to his grandparents’ home in the Japanese countryside. It also reflects a realisation that emerged from his time there: that natural and human-made are both part of the landscape and a part of nature. The duality of Dungeness is replicated by the book’s design – images shimmer, black pages balance white, adder stones puncture paper. To visualise the coexistence between natural and artificial objects, 90 photos have been subjected to analogue and digital processes, bringing us closer to the emotions of this peripheral place.
