Japanese photographer Noguchi Rika has been based in Berlin since 2004. This book presents the first photo collection she has produced in four years, and reflects the more recent turn in her work towards light has her dominant theme. Noguchi photographed scenes from the window of a bus she regularly rides in the German capital, and arranged the shots from the resulting single roll of film in the order taken. As if in real time, we see the diverse forms of artificial light that comprise the urban landscape, such as windows lit from within, streetlamps, and lights of vehicles, transformed into masses of spectral luminosity, transporting us to another realm in fleeting, priceless moments.
