My emotional response also culminated in my personal haiku(Japanese poem, in English) to go with each image. All the works for in this exhibition are selected from the book, along with haiku which, I believe, adds another dimension to the work.” MikiNobu Komatsu 2014 All the photographs exhibited are Cibachrome, direct print from transparency film, that hasn’t gone through any digital process. Cibachrome has not only proven to be the most archival photographic print around for 50 years but is also considered to be the most beautiful with its depth and richness in colour due to the special layers of dye and not the chemicals. As digital cameras and photographs have become more popular, production of Cibachrome stopped a couple of years ago, hence they have become rare and more precious nowadays.
