Yunohama is from the series Half Awake Half Asleep in The Water and was first presented at Asako Narahashi’s solo show, Coming Closer and Getting Further Away, at RoseGallery in Los Angeles in 2009. Narahashi’s repeated meditations on the meeting of land and sea are acerbic and emotional, leaving you with the simultaneous experiences of isolation and engulfment. In our visually-overloaded lives, Narahashi fulfills the most fundamental demand of photography—to force us to get closer to the hidden places in the world.
