Self Portrait of Illustrator Nozomi Uchida

I am focused primarily on my ongoing Boat Hulls series of abstract photographs, but the travel that I do in developing this series allows me to also continue to work on street photography and photographing architecture and urban landscapes.

With my Boat Hulls series, I find particular interest in the contrast between the abstract patterns of the structural and painted lines and colors of the hulls, and the evidence of their weather and age, which together create a unique interplay of textures. By focusing my compositions on the triangular patterns of the hulls in a square format, I am able to highlight the essential geometry of the images. Photos in the ongoing series transform often humble vessels into abstract portraits, revealing their individual identity and experience and celebrating their imperfect appeal.
