About this artwork

Captured in Tokyo, this street scene shows the fallen berries of a Japanese rowan tree. The picture’s slightly off-kilter composition is typical of Mikiko Hara’s approach, as she does not use her camera’s viewfinder to carefully compose photographs. Instead she works intuitively with a German 1930s Ikonta camera positioned at her chest or waist so as not to attract attention. This method, which Hara charac-terizes as a “gamble with serendipity,” yields impressionistic yet personal depictions of the ordinary.
