kazha imura Subjectivity and subconsciousness Japanese artist Kazha Imura fills her photographs with an alluring, albeit slightly disturbing sense of mystery. Through their simple yet dark features, her self-portraits convey a vulnerable and contemplative aura with awe-inspiring ease, as much as they represent a “deviation from subjectivity and a descent into subconsciousness”. They play with the viewer’s intrusive role as much as they do with one’s mind, yet a strange sort of warmth also emanates from them – reflecting, one would think, Kazha’s attraction to the words once spoken by Japanese chess player Shoichi Sakurai: “[the] warm heart is almighty”. >
