A collotype portfolio consists of six of Nomura Sakiko’s signature works.

Sakiko Nomura’s “Träumerei” consists of five black and white works with two images printed on the top and bottom, and one still life photograph of flowers taken in Nomura’s hometown of Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture. The portfolio title is known as a piano song by German composer Robert Schumann, and is a word that means “dream” or “reverie.” As suggested by these words, the six works featured here are characterized by a mixture of travel memories and intimacy, and are reminiscent of images that resemble daydreams. Although the city is the title of the work, the two different images were not necessarily taken there, but rather the title was given to each set of two photographs that Nomura put together when creating this portfolio.
