Eleventh Finger
Hardcover, 60 pages
14 x 9.5 in.
Published by Artbeat, 2015

Japanese photographer Yuki Onodera facetiously refers to herself as the eleventh finger when taking surreptitious snapshots of strangers on city streets. In order to mask her subjects, she created elaborate cut-out patterns that blend together all sorts of motifs, from floral and animal to geometric and iconic. These she then superimposed over the photographic image prior to exposing the enlarged prints. The resulting photograms can be interpreted as bizarre visualisations or broadcasts of the simultaneously structured and fragmented, seemingly nonsensical thought patterns of the anonymous and unguarded subjects, snaking and billowing through the air around them.
