Misho is Emi Anrakuji's ode to the sense of loss and abandon that permeate our inner journeys through complicated times, her most honest statement to date after the cerebral illness that compromised her eyesight and confined the artist to a decade of solitude. Edited by photographer Paulo Nozolino, Misho refuses the grandiose and aims at the pure, the simple of Anrakuji's solitary and intuitive practice.
In order to respect this quasi-religious character of Anrakuji's work, the book adopts an apparent graphic serenity. Anrakuji's photographs were printed above a layer of silkscreened photoluminescence ink that allows the images and text to be seen in the dark, after intense exposure to light.
