Photos of Icelandic Water in Japanese Exhibition

Japanese photographer Keiko Kurita opened her exhibition “H2O” at the PUNCTUM Photo+Graphic gallery in Tokyo this week, including photographs taken in swimming pools and of the snow in Iceland and Norway during mid-winter.

“In my photographs I’ve captured the elements of daily life and a sense of the seasons. On reflection, I realized that these images were unconsciously connected to water—snow, ice, fog, lakes, sea, rain, the water in the swimming pool, the aquarium, the water in a glass. […] They are all H2O,” Kurita said in a press release.

“I wanted to explore the relationship between water and us as human beings. Water is essential for all creatures on earth. Water changes shape, it’s sometimes dangerous, but also tender, cold, and hot. Water can sustain life, but it also has the power to kill us. I find water mysterious, beautiful, mesmerizing, and marvelous,” the artist added.

Keiko Kurita’s “H2O” exhibition is open until April 13. Click here to visit her website and here to look at a video she made of swimming pools in Iceland.
