Black ink and water series by Shinichi Maruyama

For Shinichi Maruyama, photography is a resourceful medium rich in aesthetic, commercial, and social possibilities. The Kusho series consists of twenty-three large-scale color photographs that represent the interplay of black ink and water, both in midair and on white surfaces. The phenomenon that Maruyama captures – two liquids colliding the millisecond before they merge into gray – is the result of various actions and devices.
