Soft machine by Marianne Kodaira

 

Photographer: Marianne Kodaira

 

For Issue 4: Adornment, I present my photographic series 'Soft Machine,' consisting of scenes in and around New Zealand, Japan and South Korea captured on my iPhone. the concealed multi-purposes of the iPhone's technology provides me with the incognito trifecta of quality, convenience and anonymity. The mood is inconspicuous and unseen, kinetic, peripatetic and ephemeral, each shot a fragmented preservation of the spurious patina of what it means to live. Within that dynamic, this series shines light on a random subset of people across countries and cultures and the way they adorn themselves and their environments.
