It is a strange but none the less charming fact that an object as beautifully round, smooth and translucent as a full moon exists only because a grain of sand has irritated the insides of an oyster. Yuki Onodera, a Japanese photographer now living in Paris, has taken this quirky process of nature as inspiration for a series of wonderfully atmospheric and aptly grainy black-and-white pictures. A speck of sand has infiltrated the lens of her camera and is now transformed into a pearl that hovers tantalizingly above the heads of people in a crowd, like a luminous being of pure light. Onodera was born in Tokyo in 1962, and studied at the Kuwazawa Design Studio. Her work is represented in the permanent collections of such institutions as the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. How to Make a Pearl is published as part of our One Picture Book Series in an edition limited to 500 numbered and signed copies. Each book comes with an original black-and-white print tipped into the final page. Limited quantity.
