    A. Narahashi, half awake and half asleep in the water, Portland: Nazraeli Press, 2007, p. 46

  • Catalogue Essay

    The series half awake and half asleep in the water began on a snorkelling and swimming holiday in Okinawa. Inspired by the many hours spent floating in the ocean, Narahashi used the competing feelings of comfort and seasickness caused by the waves to take photographs which capture this dual experience. Here Narahashi photographs Japan’s well-known symbol Mount Fuji from Kawaguchiko (Lake Kawaguchi) and creates a new language in landscape photography by connecting water and land in an unusual way.
